Tynemouth SC adopt the RS400

Tynemouth Sailing Club are pleased to announce the decision to adopt the RS400 fleet as an adopted class within the club. This will be the first new class adopted at the club for over 20 years, joining the already established classes of Lasers and Enterprises.

There are 10 400’s at the club already, ranging from newcomers to National and European regulars. The fleet is really on the up, regular in-club training days are being held to help newcomers get up to speed with the boat, and RS association coaching days to fine tune our racing skills. With the inaugural RS400 open event being run from Tynemouth SC on in 5/6 June, and the 2021 UK Nationals are being held across the river at South Shields – this year is looking great for the Tynemouth RS400 fleet. 

Over the last 3 years, under the leadership of Dave Gebhard (Trident UK), the club has invested heavily in the future. During this time, the club has acquired a new committee boat, new RIBs, new outboard engines, new training 2000s, and completed a refurbishment of both bars in the clubhouse. The club is gearing up to host the 2021 International 14 POW this August, along with a full sailing calendar for club racing on both a Wednesday evening and Sunday afternoons.

To be a part of it – please view the club website @ or contact the TSC RS400 fleet representative Neil Schofield @
