RSC Commodore - Alistair Johnson
Welcome to Reading Sailing club, 2014. This year is the clubs 60th
anniversary, I am sure it will be a very exciting year as we have
planned our usual full calendar of sailing and racing activities
on and off the water. We will also put special focus on social events
to bring our members and friends together in this important anniversary
During 2013 many new members have joined and on behalf of the committee
I would like to extend a very warm welcome. We hope you enjoy the
very warm and friendly atmosphere of the RSC and you participate
fully with all aspects of the club activities. The founders all

Racing started again on Sunday 23rd March. The lane is now clear
and usable and much of the ground around the club house has dried

water supply has been restored so the toilets are functioning,
however the tap water is not safe for drinking.
Following the review of the scoring system at the end of last
year the sailing instructions have been amended to reflect the
consensus of opinion.
The changes can be found with the following link. Sailing
The handicaps have also been changed to reflect this and the
