Go Sailing

Fancy giving Sailing a go?  Our range of modern dinghies means that, whatever your experience, we have the boat for you.   Alternatively, if you have your own boat, we offer own-boat tuition so you can learn how to get the most out of it!    Please note that Sailing boats are not available for hire.

We offer a range of Sailing courses to suit all ages and abilities whether it is your first sailing experience or you are wanting to refresh your skills if you have not sailed for a while.   These can lead on to the internationally recognised RYA qualifications, or we can arrange tuition on a more bespoke basis to suit your needs.

Sailing Taster Session

2 Hours / £80 per person

Our Sailing Taster Sessions provide the perfect opportunity to come and have a go, without having to commit to a 2-day course.   It might be something you have always fancied, but not had the confidence to try and see if it is for you.  Maybe you have not sailed for a while and just need some help getting back get out on the water. Whatever your reason, our taster sessions will give you the basic skills you will need if you decide to go on and book a RYA Course.

We offer three different Taster Sessions based on the type of boat you would like to try…

  • Single-hander’s – Great if you want maximum time at the controls
  • Laser 16’s – Take upto 4 people – Great for couples and familes
  • Hawk 20 Keel Boat Sessions – Take up to 6 people and our most stable boat. Really well suited for people who are less mobile or those wanting the bigger boat experience.

Please select session for details, dates, availability and to book a place.
