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.

 

Boat Fleets

We have several different classes of boats sailing and racing at the club. The Finn Fleet ranges from Taylors, Pearsons and Elvstroms to a modern Pata. The Club hosted the Finn Masters in 2010 and the Finn Inlands in 2012 and the Finn Open in 2013. The Laser fleet is continuing to grow and attract new members. We have a very strong youth section starting to move out of Toppers into Radials, who are really boosting the quality of competition. The Topper fleet is growing and numbers have been boosted with the SW Squad training at Roadford throughout the Winter. The bulk of the fleet are often away from the lake as most are members of Zone/Development squads.

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!
