Join us on a half day private session Sailing

If you have missed getting out sailing as much as us, come and join us for a half day private session.

We have a great range of boats for you to choose from including single handers such as RS Quba, Zests, Fusions (including Gennakers) Lasers and for the young sailors Toppers, Oppies and Tera. Our double hander fleet includes RS Ventures, 2000’s, RS 500’s, Cats and for the younger sailors Feva’s.

These session are aimed at competent sailors who are familiar with how to right a dinghy/cat from capsized.

The instructor will be working from a safety boat to ensure social distancing so you need to be at the level to be able to rig the boat, with advise from a distance and sail comfortably in the conditions.

These sessions are designed for you; learn new skills and experience sailing in our tidal water………or just go and have a lovely old time!

£100 half day session - 1 person per session 

In the event of 2 people wishing to sail a crewed dinghy together, Welsh law currently requires them to be from the same household, please book your session and details on how to add a second person to your session will be included in your confirmation email.

 

Where possible the instructor will coach you through how to self help to minimise contact and in the event of intervention being required we will tow behind the safety boat wherever possible.

Sessions may be cancelled at short notice in the event of the conditions not being suitable.


PLEASE BRING WITH YOU:

  • Swimming togs & towel
  • Footwear for on the water
  • Sock that cover your ankles
