Frostbite Series - 2023

Frostbite Series - 2023

Restronguet SC runs a popular Frostbite series on five Sundays from November to December and the series is open to visitors. The first four Sundays are standard Restronguet Club Racing and the last Sunday (10th December) is the World famous Christmas Pudding pursuit race. 

On Sundays from 12th November to 3rd December there are 2 standard club races using standard club sailing instructions (available below) with the first warning signal at 1300. 

On 10th December is the Christmas Pudding Pursuit race (the link to sailing instructions is available below). The warning signal is 1100.


The cost is £26 per boat including helm and crew, or £14 for under 18s.

Existing RSC Members who have completed a Club Series Racing Entry for 2023 are already registered for the Frostbite series and do not need to enter this event separately.

RS200 Coaching

For visiting RS200 sailors we offer coaching, in addition to entry to the Frostbite Series. Training will take place on the Sunday mornings, then you can put your skills to practise in Sunday afternoon racing with the other Restronguet 200s. 

The coaching will be coordinated by Kyle Brown, RYA Level 2 coach and RS200 sailor. Kyle has been coaching our very successful Youth 200 sailors at Restronguet for 3 years. We are hoping that Henry Hallam, winner for the Ugly Tour in 2021 and 2022, will be able to help out for training on at least one of the days.

Training will focus on boat speed, boat set-up, manoeuvres, mark roundings and starting. The coaching is for youth sailors, those new to the class and sailors who are up to mid-fleet in events like the Ugly Tour. We regularly have 4 or 5 youth boats training, so there should be plenty of competition.

To take part in the RS200 coached sessions you need to sign up for the Frostbite Series and you will need to pay £5 per-boat per-training session. For more info contact us via Messenger at Restronguet Sailing Club Youth or via the Restronguet Sailing Club Youth Facebook page

Boat storage

If there is space you can store your boat at the club (which there always has been). RSC has limited spaces for visitor dinghies (monohull only), dependent on existing members vacating spaces for the winter. If you do want to bring a monohull dinghy down then email the club at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to check space availability in the dinghy park. All dinghies must be removed by the 19th December 2023. It is compulsory to have a tie down rope (there are ropes laid to tie this to) and we would advise bringing wedges for the wheels, as some of our spaces are on a bit of a slope.  

There is generally (dependent on tide) room on the beach to rig a towed dinghy but you cannot leave the car or trailer on the beach while you sail!

Restronguet Sailing Club is on the banks of the Carrick Roads, near Falmouth - one of the major holiday resorts in the South West.

RSC as a Venue + Hire Fees

RSC is a perfect venue for Open or National Championships.Racing can be held at all states of the tide, and both inshore and offshore sailing can be provided. Carrick Roads provides the perfect venue for Championship and Open Meeting fleets of up to 80 boats in sheltered and safe waters. Falmouth Bay can be used for larger fleets wanting more open water and is, at most, only a 30-minute sail from the club. The club has excellent, clean and modern, facilities comprising purpose-built changing rooms, kitchen, clubroom and bar. The boat park, to the rear of the club, holds some 150 dinghies and there is ample of land available at nearby Windsport to accommodate the fleets. Nearby Mylor Marina has recently developed its extensive shore amenities and offers excellent chandlery and launching facilities, along with a popular restaurant, wine bar and café. The club can also provide a purpose-built committee boat…
