Sailing Taster Session - Saturday

24 August, 11:00 - 12:30

Sailing Taster Session - Have a Go

Dinghy Sailing Taster Session

If you are new to the sport, we would recommend one of our great value taster sessions. We will provide you with approximately 90 minutes of sailing where you will be able to experience helming (controlling) the dinghy, being a crew member and also of course relaxing and watching the world go by!!

A 90 minute session where we will kit you out with all you need to enjoy your first taste of sailing (you need to provide footwear). We will use the 2 person sailing dinghy's such as Pico's or Feva's and with an instructor in a safety boat with you it's a perfect time to get to grips with and experience the basics of sailing.

These 90 minutes will give you a great taste of what it's like to be on the water and starting to take control of the boat.

This is a hands on session where you will be in charge of your own boat.
