Taster Sessions 2017
These Saturday morning sessions let you try dinghy sailing in one of our larger boats with an experienced instructor on board to show you the ropes. During this session, you will have a chance to take control of the boat (if you wish), and you’ll learn how to control the boat’s speed, as well as how to steer and turn around. Why not bring a friend? It’s the same price for 2 people to take part!

The standard session lasts for an hour (see below). Alternatively – and subject to availability – you may book a 2-hour slot, for which charges are pro rata (£50).
