When you arrive, you will have time to fill in your registration form and to enjoy a cup of tea with your instructor. They will talk with you about the session and provide you with the kit and equipment you need to get sailing.

All of our sessions are led by friendly, experienced instructors who will show you the ropes, keep you safe and make sure you have a great time. All abilities are welcome, from the very first timers to those who love being out on the water.
