Push the Boat Out – Monday 6th May
Ever wanted to try sailing? Then come along to Grafham Water Sailing Club on Monday, 6 May. As part of the nationwide Push the Boat Out Initiative from the Royal Yachting Association (RYA), we are offering free sailing and windsurfing taster sessions for children and adults. Don’t worry if you have never sailed before; there will be an experienced sailor on board with you.
The day starts at 11 am and ends at 4 pm. All of the club’s facilities will be open. There’s plenty of free parking. Just turn up and follow the signs to the clubhouse, where someone will greet you and get you out on the water. There is a fantastic cafe in the clubhouse for drinks and lunch (and cake!), with plenty of seating inside and out.
Sailing can be as physical or as relaxing as you want to make it, you can sail with others or on your own, do it competitively or potter about and just enjoy the gentle escape of being outside in the elements. Whether you’re completely new to the sport or looking to get back on the water, this is the perfect time to give it a go.
We provide buoyancy aids but suggest you bring a change of clothes and shoes that can get wet (such as trainers – but not wellies).
The Magpas Air Ambulance Service will also have a stall and one of their rapid-response vehicles at the club.
We are Grafham Water Sailing Club at Perry, PE28 0BU.
