Llangorse lake is as scenic a place for sailing as one could hope to find. The lake covers an area of 400 acres in an old glacial hollow between the Brecon Beacons and the Black Mountains. You can launch your own boat or hire one at Llangorse Common (payment required) or head for the Sailing club. Visitors to the area from other clubs can join the club for a week while on holiday and get access to the lake and boat storage. The Club is an RYA Traing Centre and runs a wide variety of sailing courses for beginners and improvers and two very popular and successful annual Fun Days - for families and for people with disabilities.
You can also enjoy sailing with Merthyr Tydfil Sailing Club in wonderful mountain surroundings at Pontsticill Reservoir near Merthyr Tydfil. They sail on Wednesday evenings and Saturday afternoons but check up before you go as the access can be a little tricky at the moment.

If you are bringing your own boat to the National Park from an area elsewhere, please help us stop the spread of invasive species such as killer shrimps and zebra mussels by following the Check Clean and Dry routine with your boat and kit - thanks.
