Dinghy Racing

Dinghy Racing 

At RVSC we run club dinghy racing on Sundays throughout the year and also on a Wednesday evening from early April until the end of October. Members race a variety of boats including Lasers, DZero, 2000, Lark, GP14….

Wednesday evening racing is a 7pm start. Sunday racing is a 1pm start, with a second race at 3pm. Please be at the club one hour before racing commences, so ensuring prompt race starts.

As with all aspects of our club, the emphasis at Rossendale Valley Sailing Club, is around fun for all with a little friendly competition thrown in for good measure.

We encourage members of all abilities and experience to join in and have fun and most find they have a great time and develop their sailing  at the same time.

Most Races are Handicap Races based on the  RYA Portsmouth Yardstick system but we do run some pursuit racing events throughout the year.

A full list of the different events can be found on our events page.

Detailed information on the RYA’s handicap system, know as Portmouth Yardstick, can be found on the RYA page.
