Home Venue Information Whitwell, Rutland Water

15th - 16th July 2017

Social Sailing - Racing on Saturday. Dinner at the Noel Arms on Saturday evening.

Launching at WhitwellThe Seavets Rutland Water event will once again be held at Whitwell Sailing Centre on the north shore of Rutland Water, which faces the prevailing wind and has plenty of room for rigging. This is an ideal location for recreational sailing as well as racing. There are plenty of B & Bs in the area and camping is permitted on site (but if arriving on Friday get there by 7pm to avoid being locked out!).

This year camping will be on the point but will not be available until late afternoon - park in the windsurf carpark until the point is vacated.

£30 for 2 nights camping provided you have booked in advance - ring the centre on 01780 460154. If not pre-booked charge will be £20 a night.


For any other queries please contact Ruth or Derrick

Use the A1, rather than the M1 - going round Leicester can be tedious. Take the A606 towards Oakham, and after Empingham take left turn to Rutland Water north shore. (Do not follow signs to Rutland Sailing Club.)
If you use the M1, go to J21 Leicester, take ring road to A47 then Uppingham. A6993 to Oakham, then signs to Empingham and Whitwell.
