If you have ever wanted to try sailing, or you are wondering if you would like to join our club, then this is your chance to come and sample our hospitality and facilities, and to get out on the water for a first hand experience.
All visitors are welcome and we will have club tours available on demand for anyone who’d like to be shown round our facilities.
Ever wanted to try sailing? Get onto the water for a dinghy sailing taster at our Open Day
There will be three pre-bookable sessions for adults:
Session 1: 13:30
Session 2: 14:30
Session 3: 15:30
After a short introduction, you will take to the water with one of our experienced sailors, who will show you which ropes to pull and even let you have a go at steering. Included in your ticket is a drink and light snack for when you come off the water.
Children can go sailing with their parents or they can opt for a taster in one of our boats specifically for children only, with sessions available to book at 14:30 and 15:30. Parents will need to be available to supervise their children at all times.
What to Wear for a Sailing Taster
Suitable warm clothing, waterproof trousers and top and trainers. Should you have a wetsuit and neoprene boots then that would also be an option though certainly not essential. If the weather on the day is warm then shorts will be fine. Buoyancy aids will be worn whilst on the water, so if you have one bring it with you, otherwise we will provide you with one on the day. Hot showers are available so bring a change of clothes and a towel.
Learn to Sail
If you decide you would like to learn to sail then the club offers RYA Level 1&2 adult training courses during the year. The dates for this year’s adult courses are:
- Aug 7/8, Aug 14,15

For children our Juniors’ Sailing Group aims to introduce youngsters to sailing with their parent or guardian, enhancing their skills and having fun as they progress through the junior fleet of boats.
