About this Event

Visiting today is ideal for beginners wanting to learn about sailing, those who used to sail and are looking to take it up again, or as part of a family day out in the beautiful Trossachs. It is also a great opportunity for regular sailors to find out about Loch Venachar, the sailing club for Callander and Stirling. There will be members and instructors to answer your questions about our friendly club and the RYA sailing courses we are running this summer.

Due to popularity we expanded availability. At 23/5/19 there is a slot for 4 people at 10:30 due to a cancellation, and a few individual spaces free though the day. Bookings close on Thursday evening.

The taster sessions will run throughout the day as part of Push The Boat Out. An experienced sailor will take you out in a stable sailing dinghy. Sessions are about an hour, and open to anyone – adults and children.

Each dinghy can take up to 3 adult visitors, or 1 adult and 3 smaller children. Please tell us how many there are in your group, and the ages of any children. Get in touch if you have a larger group.

Age restriction: Sessions are available for ages 5 and upwards. Young children should be accompanied by a guardian on the boat.

What to bring: Clothing suitable for sailing including a wind proof and splash proof cagoule and footwear such as old trainers that you don't mind getting wet. It will be a bit cooler on the water, so bring an extra layer or two, and a hat. Also a change of clothes just in case.

Avoid jeans and wellies. In general artificial fibre/sports clothes are more comfortable than cotton.

We supply buoyancy aids.

Sailing and windsurfing sessions are free, but need to be booked through Eventbrite.
