Sailing challenge for workmates on the waters of Rudyard Lake

RUDYARD Lake Sailing Club is giving workmates the chance to get on board with a challenge.

Co-workers are being invited to learn the ropes of sailing as part of the Sport England-funded Workplace Challenge, which aims to engage UK workplaces in sport, physical activity and healthy living.

Teams of three can sign up for the six-week evening RYA Start Sailing course at Rudyard Lake.

They will then have a chance to put their newly acquired skills to the test against other sailors in the Workplace Sailing Challenge Regatta.

Gareth Brookes, RYA Midlands Regional Development Officer, said: “We hope to show how easy and fun it is to get afloat locally after a busy day at work.”

The course starts on June 6. For more information call 01538 306200.
