Helping to get more people sailing, more often
We pride ourselves on being a family oriented sailing club, providing a safe environment for all members of the family, the club has recently invested significantly in refurbishing its facilities to provide welcoming and comfortable shore facilities that complement our unrivalled launching and jetty facilities. Dinghy racing is our passion but we also provide a high standard of instruction and coaching for all ages and abilities. If you want to sail but don't like getting your feet wet then our DF65 model yacht racing may be for you.

As we move into September events to look out for are: Streaker Coaching on Saturday 5th September, Bart’s Bash on Sunday 20th September ( this event is a must for all members as we attempt to fill the lake with boats, taking part is more important than your sailing skills so come and join in the fun). The Streaker open takes place on Saturday 26th September.
Over the Horizon:
Saturday 3rd October is the N12 Open Meeting, Saturday 24th October is the Mirror Open Meeting and then to round off the clubs trophy events Sunday 1st November is the Champion of Champions and Others Trophy day.
Don’t forget to keep your eye on the What’s On calendar, Helen Voisey has been working hard to keep it up to date to make sure you are kept up to date with our events on and off the water.
Junior Hart Cup – Sunday afternoons starting on September 6th.
It's been great to see so many of our young sailors progress across the year. We've got some talented young helms emerging from Junior Saturday Club and we'd love to see them joining the racing on Sundays. The Hart Cup is a great way to do this! To qualify, all you need to do is sail the first lap (or lap and a bit) in the Sunday afternoon races (the first one starts at 13.15) across Sept & Oct. There are 12 races with 5 to count. If you want to carry on and finish the race you will qualify for the Autumn Series as well you get 2 races in one!
Please remember to sign on both the Hart Cup and Autumn series signing on sheets.
This is a great complement to the Launchpad race training so come along and maybe you'll be the next champion!
Bass Week 2015 starts on the 1st August, Chris Wright will be sending regular reports on the weeks events, keeping his Wright Report page updated as often as he can so if you want to see what you are missing or keep up to date with the results visit The Wright Report page.

Too windy for racing two days in a row up in North Berwick (Monday & Tuesday) so it was a day of relaxation and sight seeing again for the Clark family.
Y&Y report plus a snip of video from Will Loy here...
Solo Nationals are taking place at North Berwick, Bernard Clark hot off the ferry from Holland supporting our RS Tera fleet will be putting his own helming skills to the test there in a very competitive fleet (results here). The Enterprise Nationals ended this week with 3 RSC boats taking part so we hope to see a report soon from that event. (results here) (Y&Y event report and final results)
Ex RSC member Martin Denchfield gets a mention in Y&Y for his performance at the Scorpion Nationals which started last Saturday. Martin finished the week long event in a very creditable 35th place, well done Martin.
August Bank Holiday Weekend
Finally don't forget that the club will be buzzing with a host of things to keep all the family occupied over the August Bank Holiday weekend. (further details here)
Congratulations to all the RSC Team RS Tera Helms who have sailed their World Championship event this week in some conditions that most of us would have taken one look at and stayed ashore.
Tom Storey looked good on day one of the championships and came through to the end the event as World Champion in the sport fleet, very well done Tom. Jamie Rastrick took 7th Place with Ollie Kent a place behind in 8th.
Henry Rastrick in the Pro fleet was only one point away from 3rd place, taking 4th overall after some nail biting finishes.
We will try to bring you a full report and results when they are published.
