Weather permitting Rutland Sailability holds regular sailing sessions on each Thursday (10.00 to 15.00) and Saturday (09.30 to 12.00) from the beginning of April to the end of October.
We can be found at Rutland Sailing Club and share the excellent on-site facilities.
We try to ensure we provide boats that cater for the differing needs of our members. Some of our boats are perfect for cruising and provide a good stable base from which to sail while others are great for racing at club level or on national circuits. Here are some details about the boats we sail.
Each Fleet Captain is responsible for the care of the boats in their charge, but more particularly they are your points of contact to ensure you get to sail the boats of your choice.

Your Sailing Goals - you choose
You can come and learn to sail or just enjoy being in a boat, how far you go is your choice. There is an opportunity to progress through many of the RYA Levels of competence from pottering about to racing.
