Rutland Water is one of the largest man-made stretches of water
in Europe, as big as Windermere and set in some of Britain's loveliest
countryside. The beauty of Rutland can be seen at its best from a boat!
Conditions are similar to estuary sailing, but without the tides - over 3000
acres (1215 hectares) of sheltered water.
The thirteen acre site on the South shore of Rutland Water
boasts seven concrete slipways with four pontoons and connecting walkways,
permitting easy launch and recovery of keelboats and cruisers. There are 145
moorings for cruisers and parking space for 850 dinghies and sailboards.
You can moor your boat on the water and use the ferry to get to it; otherwise
there are pontoons and slipways to help launch and retrieve.
You can compete in Club races, Open Meetings... or just sail! As well as a
Sailing School, there's a Chandlery to supply boat parts, spares, clothing -
everything you and your boat may need. There are specialist sections for youth
sailing and those with disabilities. The Club is recognised by the RYA as one
of their centres for training Olympic and National Teams.
