Things To Do

Rutland Civil Service Sailing Club | Sailing Taster

18 Jun 2022
10:00AM - 3:30PM

The day sail is primarily intended to introduce people to sailing. 

Attendees are encouraged to take a full part in all the activities, helming, crewing etc. You’ll be in safe hands with our qualified helms and crew who have kindly volunteered their time to give you a great sailing experience.

1 space available on the 10am time slot. New additional time slot available- 1pm-3.30pm 

About the boats

We sail Squib Keelboats – which are 19ft long and have a fixed keel, capable of giving an experienced sailor or new to the sailing crew, a lively and exciting sail. We also have a 27ft Soling, which raced in the 1972 Olympics. If you are nervous about sailing, just to say fixed keelboats are much more stable than a dinghy and highly unlikely to capsize.

Who can sail

Rutland CSSC welcomes all people who would like a taster sail:

  • CSSC Members
  • Non- CSSC Members
  • RAPC Association Members
  • Children 16 yrs old or older - may sail unaccompanied with a competent helm and crew.
  • Children under 16 would need to sail with an accompanying adult who has the parent's permission to do so

You will be given a full safety briefing and we will provide buoyancy aids –which must be worn, including on the jetty.

The helm is responsible for crew and boat safety and has the final say regarding the safety of the boat and crew.

  • CSSC Members: £20.00
  • Non CSSC Members: £35.00
  • RAPC Association Members: £20.00
