Rock Sailing and Waterski Club is delighted to welcome the Lark, Phantom, Europe and Tasar fleets to the annual May Day Bank Holiday Open Meeting to be held from 4th to 6th May.

The Club again offers visitors to this famous part of Cornwall the chance to sail on the spectacular waters of Padstow Bay and Camel Estuary.

The Club is situated about 5 miles to the west of Wadebridge and opposite the picturesque fishing port of Padstow. For those who have not visited before, Rock Sailing and Waterski Club is a very family orientated club offering a warm welcome to sailors of all standards. The clubhouse has a first floor clubroom with panoramic view over the Camel Estuary with a well-stocked bar and fabulous food.

The Larks have sailed in Rock over this weekend for over 30 years, and this year the event is even larger as four classes will now extend this tradition of great Spring racing.

The Club will be open on the Friday night before sailing offering its famous fish and chip supper and the Club will have a pizza evening on Saturday - a date which has for some has developed into a 'great social night' over the years.

The Club looks forward to welcoming you in May.
