Racing and Other Events
At Rutland Sailability we encourage sailors to participate in racing. We have, among our volunteers, class and club racing coaches. During the time that Rutland Sailability operates we offer racing on Thursday afternoons, which includes on the water coaching.
For the more experienced, Rutland Sailing Club welcomes our members to participate in Thursday evening racing, April to September and Sundays throughout the year. Our members have been Rutland Sailing Club Dinghy Champions many times.
Beyond the club we endeavour to support our competitive sailors to take part in class open meetings and, for our faster boats, in open handicap events such as the Sailjuice series where we have gained Top Club status for Rutland Sailing Club in the 2017/18 period.
To support the practical skills of our racing sailors we arrange theory sessions on tactics, rules and boat tuning. Our sailors have taken part in international events in many parts of the world.
Helping Others in the Community
Rutland Sailability share their joy of being on the water with other societies that support a variety of disabled or disadvantaged members of the community. We regularly host events for PASIC (Parents Association for Seriously Ill Children), GDCS (Grantham Disabled Children's Society), Rutland 'Aiming High' and Children from Chernobyl.
