Sailing at the Lake
Times: the main club racing day is Sunday, when there are normally two races at midday and 2:30pm. From mid-May until late September, there is also racing on a Wednesday afternoon. See the Sailing Programme page for more details.
Classes: the racing is on a Handicap basis, using the usual Portsmouth Yardstick. The commonest classes at the club are:
Laser - easily the most popular class in the club, with numbers in double figures.
Bosun - a very stable and reassuring dinghy, heavier than most. Designed as a double-hander but often sailed single-handed at the club.
Other classes sailed include Topper, Wayfarer, Otter, Scorpion, Enterprise etc, but any dinghy with a PY (or even without) is very welcome.
Many club members enjoy going for a gentle cruise on the Upper Tamar Lake, independently of racing. Note that during most of the year, the South West Lakes Trust provide safety boat cover for all watersports users on the Lake.
Club members also have a cruising programme away at locations such as Carrick Roads and Plymouth Sound; see the Social Programme page for more details.
