To say how many reservoirs ,lakes and dams there are in yorkshire ,there are very few if any that allow the use of the general public using powered craft,mostly they are private sailing clubs or used for drinking water ,even the watersports centres dont allow powered craft except for there own rescue boats ,there maybe some in south yorks and i think there is a couple of lakes over the pennines on the lancashire/manchester side .
the lancashire sibbers may have a better idea ,, Sale water park and Hollingworth waterpark spring to mind ,,,(not often us yorkshire like going over the pennines into lancashire ,war of the roses ,,lol. [/QUOTE]
You yorkies just can't get over defeat, let it go, it was a long time ago
Seriously though i believe that sale water park is for engine testing only and hollingworth lake as an engine size limit of 5hp if my memory serves me correctly.
I live less than 20 mins drive from both of them and cant use them. My own personal recommendations are for rivers either York or Chester and don't forget the fabulous Lake district. There are 4 lakes that you can SIB on, these being Windermere, Coniston, Ullswater and Derwent. As for the sea I'd go for Whitby, Easy to use, good facilities and great cruising area.
