Event description

Description

Have you ever wanted to try dinghy sailing but were unsure what is involved? Why not come along to one of our Try Sailing sessions on Saturday 20th July?

Dinghy sailing need not be as expensive as you might think – club boats for hire from £10/day and plenty of people looking for crews to sail with to get you started.

Our Trial Sessions are priced at only £5 for a 45 minute sailing experience. Experienced sailors will be on hand to take you out on our lake in a sailing dinghy or powerboat and our friendly club members will be on shore to chat about the sport and how you can get involved. Teas, coffees refreshments and a light lunch will be available to purchase.

A fun time for all the family – so come along and join us!

Registration is essential to help us plan numbers and ensure you get the best experience possible.

To find us, follow yellow signs to the Lee Valley Farms from Waltham Abbey or Nazeing or take a look at our website for directions. www.fishersgreensc.org.uk.

FAQs

Is there a minimum age requirement for the event?

This event is open to young people (10yrs+) and adults. All young people must be accompanied by a parent or guardian for the duration of the event to supervise their young people whilst ashore.

What do I need to bring with me?

Please bring sutiable clothing to wear on the water, and a towel and change of clothing/footwear in case you get damp / wet. We will provide a buoyancy aid for you to wear.

Do I need to be able to swim?

This is not a requirement because buoyancy aids must be worn by all participants at all times whilst on a water. We will do our best not to capsize during the session, and there will be support boats on standby just in case.

What if the weather is bad?

Sailing is dependent on the strength of the wind. If there is absolutely no wind we cannot sail for obvious reasons then your session may have to be postponed. Again if the wind is very strong then, for safety reasons, the session might also have to be postponed.

If this is the case, we'll try to give you advance notice via the email address you register with to arrange another suitable time for yourselves.
