Sailing / Yacht Club
The idea of the South Staffordshire Sailing Club was born on August 1st, 1950, in the columns of the Express and Star. On that date there appeared an article “Yachting in Staffordshire” by the writer of this introduction, the present honorary secretary of the club. It described the pleasures of sailing on a privately owned stretch of water, not many miles from the centre of Wolverhampton. It also deplored the fact that here in the land – locked Midlands, too many people who loved small boat sailing had to suppress that longing for lack of facilities.
