Thinking about learning to sail? Rudyard Lake Sailing Club is an RYA Recognised Training Centre, running both RYA approved courses and junior training sessions throughout the season for all ages and ability levels.

Jybaz offers young children the chance to gain confidence in the water and have fun at a new hobby whilst staying safe. Children of all skill levels are welcome. You don’t need to have your own boat to join in the fun as the Club has a range of boats that are used for training on the Jybaz days. We welcome all age ranges from 6 to 18 to join the team. You are never too young to start.

There is an active racing scene at the club, with a number of racing series throughout the year for all levels of experience.

These are informal sessions where members can sail, SUP or windsurf knowing that there is safety boat cover available. There is usually coaching and support available if you want or need it.

Rudyard Lake is a superb location for stand-up paddleboarding. At over 2.5 miles long, it has some of the most dramatic scenery in Staffordshire Moorlands and a hugely varied shore with open farmland at one end, inlets to explore, the railway down one side and the earth dam where the lake feeds the local canal system for which the lake was built.

We have a superb clubhouse with fully licensed bar, commercial kitchen, spacious ladies', men's and family shower rooms and central heating throughout.

Rudyard Ruminations

Rudyard Ruminations 8th October 2020

Hi all,

COVID-19 Update and changes to operations

The constantly changing government restrictions on the operation of bars and restaurants have a direct impact on the club.  The limited bar and galley service we have been offering is changed again with immediate effect

Whilst the bar is closed the operation of the galley can stay as it has been.  People can order from the galley counter and the products will be delivered to the table and payment taken.  Payment is preferably by contactless card payment. 
When the bar is open then the club must be entirely table service.  The bar person will circulate round the tables asking for orders.  They will go and make the order and deliver to the table.  No galley service is available at this time.  Payment is again to be taken at the table.
