Event description

Description

Come and join us at our open day where you can enjoy a FREE sail in one of our double-handed dinghies and find out all about joining our club and learning how to sail.

You'll be taken out on the water by one of our experienced sailors. Also, meet some of members of the club to show you around and who will be on hand to talk to you about training opportunities and membership.

Sailability

If you have limited mobility why not take a sail in one of our accessible sailing boats.

FAQs

is there a minimum age to come for a sail?

This event is open to children and adults. There is a minimum age of 8 years old for children. All children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian for the duration of the event to supervise their children whilst ashore.

What do I need to bring with me?

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

How much does the event cost?

This is a free event. We'll happily discuss membership of the club and training opportunities on the night.

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 or on the jetty. We will do our best not to capsize during the taster session, but there will be safety 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 and the open day may have to be postponed. Again if the wind is very strong then, for safety reasons, the open day may also have to be postponed. If this is the case, we'll give you advance notice via the email address you register with.
