After the success of Britain’s sailors at London 2012, the sport is experiencing a boost in popularity. It’s never been easier to start sailing in Staffordshire & Cheshire. Rudyard Lake, situated in glorious rolling countryside between Macclesfield and Leek is home to Rudyard Lake Sailing Club which is holding an Open Day on Bank Holiday Monday 4th May from 11am to 3pm.
The day guarantees to offer something for everyone, whether you are a novice or are looking to get back into the sport after a break away. Enjoy your first taste of sailing with an experienced club member or simply sample the social side of what your local sailing club has to offer. We cater for all ages and levels of experience.
Who knows how far you might get. Rudyard Lake has produced some world class sailors including John Gimson who is currently part of our British Olympic squad for Rio 2016. John said “The open day is a fantastic opportunity to try out sailing at a really friendly club with great facilities. I still love to return there when I have a gap in my schedule”
The doors are open to welcome everyone regardless of experience. Just bring a change of clothes, soft-soled shoes and waterproofs and the club will supply everything else you need. Refreshments will be available.
Don’t worry if you can’t make the 4th, the club will also be open to vistors on 9th May as part of a country wide RYA event – “Push the Boat Out”.
