Rutland Sailing Club will be staging the Keelboat Championship

Rutland Sailing Club has been selected to host the first international inclusive event of its kind.

They will be staging the Keelboat Championship at the Rutland club from September 30 until October 3.

The World Sailing recognised event constitutes a one-design keelboat class that can categorically be celebrated as pure inclusion sailing.

It will be sailed on a fleet of RS21 charter boats on the Southern shore of the largest reservoir and Olympic medallist David Wilkins, speaking on the behalf of the club, was proud of their selection as hosts.

He said: "It is truly a great honour for Rutland Sailing Club to be hosting the International Inclusive Keelboat Championship.

"We are really looking forward to offering a warm welcome to all of the competitors and their supporters.

"We are hugely proud of the facilities our club is able to provide and, in conjunction with Rutland Sailability, we regularly host and support visitors from around the world.

"It will be an exciting opportunity to share our community and expertise alongside these two fantastic international championships."

The event will run alongside the 2024 RS Venture Connect World Championship.
