About our Club


Rutland Civil Service Sailing Club (RCSSC), a small, friendly group who enjoy sailing in good company. We enjoy corporate membership of Rutland Sailing Club, a premier UK Sailing Club which has great facilities and fantastic views across the water and surrounding countryside. We like to sail for pleasure by cruising around Rutland Water, one of the best lakes in the country. Some of our members are now taking part in Rutland Sailing Club races.

Rutland Civil Service Sailing Club comprises of 20’ish members. We don’t have a regular sailing day like many clubs. Instead we contact each other using the on-line booking system on our website, email or phone to arrange when we sail and who with. There are a few members who seem to sail most weeks, and sometimes twice or more times during a week, but most sail on an occasional basis as when they have a free day which may be during the week as well as at the weekend. We sail club keel boats

We sail Keelboats owned and maintained by our club including three Squibs and a Soling which sailed in the 1972 Olympics.
