In the Victoria Hotel, Wolverhampton on July 22nd 1954 the club negotiated it’s first lease for dinghy sailing on the small Calf Heath reservoir.  It was less than a third of the size of Gailey Lower pool.  It was with Enoch Powell’s great help which finally ensured a successful conclusion to the club’s tortuous negotiations with the Waterways Executive.  In January 1955 members were organised into gangs for a co-ordinated programme of site clearance and construction.  South Staffs Sailing Club was born.
