Rockley Watersports has a base in the Midlands to enable us to welcome even more sailors, windsurfers and paddlers onto the water. Located to the south west of Birmingham in Bartley Green just moments from junction 3 of the M5, Bartley Sailing Club is based on a large, 120 acre drinking water reservoir offering fantastic sailing conditions for the more experienced, whilst still having plenty of sheltered nooks and crannies for those less familiar. With a well appointed clubhouse, a whole range of equipment and easy access onto the water, the beauty of Bartley is that you can arrive, get kitted up in our waterproofs and wetsuits and be on the water within minutes, maximising your time participating in activities to ensure you get the most from your time with us.

Rockley Watersports – Bartley offer a full and varied programme of watersports activities, from first – timer to expert and everything in between. So whether you are looking for a fun activity for a birthday party, RYA tuition, a group activity or some 1-2-1 tuition to develop a particular technique, we will have a programme to suit you. As with all Rockley's centres the emphasis at Rockley Watersports – Bartley is to ensure that every visitor has a fun and memorable experience, whilst at the same time learning something new and feeling total confidence from the support they are provided by our team of Rockley instructors and staff.
