Exe Sails will again be sponsoring the 2020 Roadford Rocket which will now be held on Saturday Mar 28th

      2018 had an amazing entry of 64 boats, last year it blew a gale and was very attritional, but hopefully with better conditions  we can get over 70 this year. Water levels did drop alarmingly last summer, but the Winter rains have raised the level to 83% so plenty of water.

    Catering on site will this year be provided by SW Lakes Lakeside Cafe., bacon butties tea & coffee will be available before sailing and hot chicken curry or multibean chilli (veg option) available after sailing

    The event is part of two series , the Sailing  SW Winter series and also the lake series within that. There are great sponsorship prizes available. GPS tracking will be available for all boats, provided by Sailing Southwest. Entry data will be shared with the series administrators for the purpose of running the series.

    Finishing arrangements will be as last year, also completion of at least one lap will get a race place. Please see the Sailing Instructions and they will be clarified at the briefing on the day. The start times are based on laser 4.7 PY as time zero. If you are intending to come with a slower boat, please let me know so we can alter the start times accordingly.

    Entry fees this year are Double handers £20, Single handers £15, Junior £10.

    We have enough car & boat parking, but please follow marshal's instructions so we can every-one in!

    In the event of severe weather please follow this website and the club facebook page in case cancellation is necessary

      This year the Charity Collection will be for the RNLI, an organisation we all hope we will never need!! A donation from event proceeds will be made and collection tins will be on site.
