RCSSC Sailing Tasters


Fancy a Taster Sail?

Whether you used to sail, already sail, or just fancy having a go on a keelboat, you will always be made welcome and looked after, by members of Rutland Civil Service Sailing Club.

What’s a  taster day like?  

Check out Civil Service Sailing Association October Newsletter – pages 6-9.  

Our Taster Days are provided in conjunction with the CSSC Civil Service Sports Council Sports & Leisure.   The CSSA is the Sailing Arm of the CSSC.

Who and how many can sail?

Open to CSSC and Non-CSSC members alike, and why not bring along your friends and family to enjoy the view, some cake  from the cafe perhaps,  from the Club veranda.  You’ll be glad you did.

Tasters are restricted to a maximum of six,  on a first come basis.

Sailing Taster Days 2022

Our priority remains the safety of our helms, guests and therefore, given the latest Covid 19 Government guidance we have had to cancel the planned June and July tasters.

We  have four dates for our tasters  planned.

  • Friday 20 May 2022
  • Saturday 18 June 2022
  • Friday 22 July 2022
  • Saturday 20 August  2022

Note: the above dates will be linked to  CSSC Events once the event has been set up on CSSC website, likely to be early 2022.

Places are limited to a maximum total of  six and are on a first come basis.   

See you on the water!

Here’s what our guests had to say

I personally really enjoyed the Taster Sailing Day – was great to actually get hands on and the conditions were perfect.  The team were lovely and all the instructors that took us out were great – very experienced and welcoming. I would love to do a bit more sailing following my experience.

Thank you for having us, we all had a wonderful time. It was a great experience and it was great to get involved.

I had a great day thanks! Always love spending time on the water-particularly when the weathers nice. No negative views, I thought the volunteers were fantastic and it was great that they were all open to sharing how they got involved,and having a chat. I was pleased to have the opportunity to take part so I can share the taster day info with my Areas, and encourage them to have a go. Always good to aid promotions if you’ve done it too!

What a great day that was. I really enjoyed the experience of sailing with you guys. I have really got the taste for it now. It was a really interesting and informative experience. With excellent briefings and attention to safety.

Each taster experience will be different as it depends on the number of participants and the weather conditions.
