Introduction

Roadford Lake Sailing Club (RLSC) is a small but very friendly club who have the privilege of sailing on the largest inland body of water in the South West. The lake itself is managed by South West Lakes Trust, who run the Watersports Centre and provide safety boat cover and manage the dinghy park. While the Watersports Centre introduce many people to sailing, RLSC organise the only regular racing on the lake. We race most Sundays through the year, except for the Christmas period and the months of January and February. Our calendar of races can be found on the Racing pages.

 

The Roadford Rocket News

Organisation has been going on at pace since this event was announced. The Club has linked with Sailracer, the international online sail event organiser to handle entries, the link is in the News Feed above and here.

GPS tracking will be available through sailracer and should be live during the event. The Sailing Instructions are here, please read carefully, particularly the arrangements for Starting, OCS penalties, General Recalls and Late Starters. Final SIs will be available on the day along with the exact composition of starting flights.

Please sign in at reception after arriving . Hot food and drinks will be ready all day, with bacon butties in the morning, and BBQ burgers after sailing. A packed lunch can be preordered with the entry form if you prefer.

When coming to the club, leave the A30 at the junction for Dingles fairground and Broadwoodwidger, pass the wind turbine on your left. Go over the dam and take the next right, another 400yds.

The People

Like every club, RLSC has a group of regular members who tend to be racing every weekend and other members who can make it to the lake less often. Committee Members information can be found on the Contact Us page. We also have our logo registered with a clothing manufacturer, who is happy to add the logo to their wide range of different styles, so if you fancy a personalised RLSC t-shirt or top, Oceanworld is the place to go!
