Rutland Sailing Club Seeks New Members

A small friendly club in wonderful surroundings

If you read CS Sailing last year, you’ll have seen the story of how RCSSC was formed by Peter Shuttleworth. Here we aim to bring you up to date.

Rutland is a small, friendly and enthusiastic club, currently with 28 members and growing. Our club enjoys corporate membership of Rutland Sailing Club, a premier UK Sailing Club with more then 1,000 members and a number of fleets, including a Squib fleet. Set in 4,200 acres of open countryside, Rutland Water Park is the central rural attraction in England’s smallest county of Rutland and offers activities for all the family. In short we are privileged to enjoy first-class facilities set in wonderful surroundings.

Meet the boats: three Squibs 19ft long : Brandy Snap, Satyr and Lift Off which is currently being refurbished, having been in store for a number of years.

You can find out more about Squibs at the National Squib Owners Association website. We also enjoy access to Time Flies, a 31ft Soling which sailed in the 1972 Olympics – a stunning boat which has an amazing story in itself.

At RCSSC we aim is to make sailing accessible and support our members to enable RCSSC to flourish and grow. We sail every weekend between April and the end of October and often some of our members enjoy a Thursday or Friday too. We regularly hold Taster Days throughout the season, primarily through the CSSC – detail can be found by viewing the CSSC sailing page under Things To Do/Sailing.

I just want to say a huge thanks Dave to both you and Mike for making it an amazing day. Both Jacob and I had a lovely day – amazing to be on a boat that takes its power from nature to travel at such a speed. I very much hope we can come along again. Thanks again for all your hard work in making it such a good day.”

Rebecca and Jacob
