Grafham ‘Youth Classes’ Day


Bank Holiday Monday 1st May.  Sailing sessions run from 1030 to about 1630.


Grafham Water Sailing Club, Perry, Cambridgeshire PE28 0BU

Who’s organising it?

Grafham Water Sailing Club and the youth classes, with support from the RYA. 

Which boats?

29er, 420, Nacra 15 and Spitfire.  Each of the classes will be providing experienced helms/crews to help sail the boats if required. There won’t be any Lasers, as people can usually arrange a trial sail in one of these boats at their home club etc.

How long will I get in a boat?

Sailing sessions are expected to last about 30 minutes or more, with some of the changeovers on the water by RIB, to save time. 

What does it cost?

Nothing for sailors – it’s free!

What do I do when I arrive at the Club?

Go to the ground floor cafe and sign-up for a session with one or more of the class representatives, on a ‘first come first served’ basis.

Do I need my own trapeze harness?

If you have one, bring it with you, but the classes will also have some spare harnesses available.

What else is going on at the Club?

 It’s an Open Day as well, so there will be other activities, and the cafe will be open all day.

Can we stay on site on Sunday night?

Camper van (£15) and tent (£10) bookings can be made with the Club office in advance – 01480 810 478,
