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 year.

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 those years ago wanted a very inclusive philosophy and this remains a core principle of the club's approach to members new and old.

It has been important for the club to develop its affiliations with the RYA. I am delighted that the efforts of our top class instructors has been recognised by the RYA and we are now a training centre of excellence. As members, you will be able to join in with one of our many courses to improve and build on your sailing and boat handling skills.

Finally, may I wish you all jolly sailing in 2014, it will be a great year.

  • Spring Series began on the 23rd March
    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 although some areas of the boat park are still rather soft. The 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 Instructions

    The handicaps have also been changed to reflect this and the 2014 numbers from the RYA. These can be found with the link below. New Handicaps
