Start Sailing

sailing group

Aimed at beginners these courses provide an introduction to the sport of sailing.

By the end of the course, participants will have a basic understanding of boat handling techniques and background knowledge enabling them to get afloat under supervision.
ADDED BONUS! Enjoy a sailing experience on our reservoir - you will be surprised how nice it is!

If you become a member there is support available to get you on the water such as Back on the Water, Coaching and Ladies Fun days.


Tuesday Try Sailing

At HSC we offer Try Sessions for Groups, Schools, Families or individuals on Tuesday evening

Taster Sessions are a great way to get on the water for the first time or to try out a new sport. We run taster sessions regularly throughout the early part of the year 4th May to 14th July, aiming to be on the water for 6:30pm and last approximately 1½ hours.

Groups may purchase a session and pay a deposit of £50 through Webcollect to confirm the booking. Junior fees are £6 each Adult fee of £8.00. Group organisers are expected to pay any additional balance at the event. Refunds are only available if Hollowell Sailing Club must cancel the booking.

Please aim to arrive at the clubhouse by 6:00 to 6:15pm to allow us time to get you kitted out for the evenings fun. Obviously the weather conditions on the day can dictate how long we are on the water for. Sessions are open to groups of all ages from 8yr upwards.

Snacks and hot drinks are available in the clubhouse.

EMAIL Steve Jolly for more information to discuss availability dates and group sizes
