  • New for 2023, these evenings give members the opportunity to enjoy some relaxed dinghy sailing.
  • Members are welcome to sail their own boats or they can borrow one from the club.
  • Please come dressed ready to sail if possible, this will allow you to get afloat sooner.
  • Safety cover will be provided by one of the club’s safety boats.
  • There’s no plan, no agenda, just turn up and sail. If you want to organise some informal fun races then go for it!
  • These sessions will be run at the same time as the Adult Training so an RYA-qualified Instructor will be afloat if you want any tips or advice.
