The Reading Offshore Sailing Club (ROC) is the inland club for the offshore sailor. It is for those people resident in and around the Reading area who are interested in sailing or motor yachts.
Our membership is made up of those who have yachts based in and around the Solent area, others without boats who would like to crew and those simply interested in learning more about sailing.
In the sailing season we have regular rallies to venues along the South Coast from Weymouth to Brighton and also across the Channel to France and the Channel Islands.In winter we have monthly meetings, at the Upper Thames Motor Yacht Club (UTMYC).
See the Event Calendar for details of our programme.
