If you're looking for a fun activity that you can pursue alone, or with family and friends, then sailing is definitely for you! Whether you are aged 8 to 88, our 'Discover Sailing' Open day and taster sessions are a great opportunity for you and your family to get out on the water and find out what this wonderful sport is all about.

We are holding our annual Open Day on Saturday 3rd July from 11am to 4pm and extend a warm invitation to anyone who would like to come and visit our marvellous facilities and discover more about the opportunities we offer our members. Admission is free and we will be offering tours of the club and taster sails on our water throughout the day. Our fleets will be running sailing demonstrations and have rigged examples of the training boats we use. Refreshments will be available and our bar will be open.

No booking is required and life-jackets will be provided. If hoping to undertake a sailing taster, wear warm clothes with a waterproof jacket. The exact programme for the day is dependent on weather conditions and subject to alteration. If you need any more information about the day, please contact Stewart

Refreshments available all day including ice cream, teas & cakes and BBQ.
