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

Club racing remains handicap based, with a small number of members active throughout the year, but most of the racing is done in the warmer weather June-September.

There is a high level of sailing in the Laser fleet, and the club also has a past Supernova champion, RS 400 & Rs Aero sailing regularly along with Dart catamarans. There is a small Finn fleet still, but a couple of regular members have moved away recently.

The racing is fun with the lake providing the biggest challenge with its size and winds, but the racing is put on to suit all levels of ability. The secretary sends out to members updates on racing and upcoming events. We do ask members to do an OOD duty from time to time, these are not onerous and need not be more than one a year. The club of course benefits from water watch & rescue provided by the trust, so unlike many clubs, rescue duties are not required.

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!
