introduce family and friends to sailing and Grafham
try different boats
sail with different people
improve your skills with help from our on-water coaching
start the weekend with a sail when there’s other Club activity on the water
optionally, join in racing, with plenty of help for newcomers who want to join in.
Racing is relaxed and optional: many people new to racing find our popular Friday pursuit race a very helpful ‘pathway’ into the more serious racing offered on Wednesdays and Sundays. Even if you choose not to race, there’ll be coach boats on the water to offer advice (if you want it) and there’ll be rescue boats on hand should you get into difficulties.

|We meet in the Cafeteria on the ground floor of the Clubhouse from 18:00 for an evening of social sailing with an optional coached pursuit race. With the race finishing at 19:45, there’s time to head to the top-deck bar for a drink and maybe a meal whilst we debrief on the sailing. Whatever your tastes, it’s a great way to start the weekend!|
4 May-10 Aug
