  1. Risk Statement: Rule 4 of the Racing Rules of Sailing states: “The responsibility for a boat’s decision to participate in a race or to continue racing is hers alone”. Sailing is by its nature an unpredictable sport and therefore inherently involves an element of risk. By taking part in the event, each competitor agrees and acknowledges that:
    1. They are aware of the inherent element of risk involved in the sport and accept responsibility for the exposure of themselves, their crew and their boat to such inherent risk whilst taking part in the event.
    2. They are responsible for the safety of themselves, their crew, their boat, and their other property whether afloat or ashore.
    3. They accept responsibility for any injury, damage or loss to the extent caused by their own actions or omissions.
    4. Their boat is in good order, equipped to sail in the event and they are fit to participate.
    5. The provision of a race management team, patrol boats and other officials and volunteers by the event organizer does not relieve them of their own responsibilities.
    6. The provision of patrol boat cover is limited to such assistance, particularly in extreme weather conditions, as can be practically provided in the circumstances.


  • Safety Regulations: Lifejackets or other adequate personal buoyancy shall always be worn by all competitors whilst afloat.

Even in the depths of winter, the hardy Telford Sailing Club sailor can be found down at the lake in Priorslee.

Our main sailing day is Sunday, three times a month (see the calendar), although the extra keen sailors enjoy a sail on wednesdays and fridays.

If you just want to come down and see what it’s all about, we’re happy to take newcomers out for a sail, or just talk about sailing.

News – July 2015

Following our announcement back in April that we are now an official RYA Training Centre, we ran successful Level 1 and Level 2 training courses in May and June. Congratulations to all our new sailors! We are looking at running some more courses next year, but in the meantime are offering a sailing experience day on the 5th September which was more than 100% oversubscribed! Clearly there is growing appeal for this wonderful pastime!
