Try Sailing This Summer – Saturday 14th July

As part of the RYA “Try Sailing this Summer” initiative, we are holding a Trial a Sail Day on Saturday 14th July. If you missed the open day on 7th May, or are hoping that there may be more wind than then, or would just like to get out on glorious Grafham Water, we are offering free dinghy and catamaran sailing 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 10:30 am and ends at 3:30 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.

Bring trainers or beach shoes that you don’t mind getting wet. You may want to bring a change of clothes in case you get damp. And don’t forget the sunscreen!

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 are Grafham Water Sailing Club at Perry, PE28 0BU.
