Sailing

At RUYC, we have a full programme of racing each year starting with the Rollins Insurance Sunday Spring Series for keelboats in Aprilincorporating Opening Day at the end of April. Thursdays from May to September are for Club Points Racing and sailors from RUYC and nearby Ballyholme Yacht Club compete 'Round the Buoys'. An Autumn Series runs from mid September to the end of October and is organised jointly with Ballyholme YC.

We also organise a series of Offshore Races which this year will be Todd Navigation Ailsa Craig Race (overnight), Glenarm Race and Portpatrick Race.
