Each year we have dedicated Open Days to give people who are interested in joining a sailing club the opportunity to give sailing a go and find out more about the sport and benefits of club membership. These are timed to lead in to our dinghy sailing training course dates. Our dates for Open Days this year are:
- Saturday 13 April 2019
- Saturday 20 April 2019
- Saturday 17th August 2019
If these dates are not suitable for you then please send us a message via the Contact Page or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to get you a taster session booked in at a more convenient time to suit you based around other events happening at the club.
About the Open Days
The Open Days start at around 11.00 am and run until about 3.00/3.30 pm and you will be welcome to come and see us between those times. There is no need to book in advance but if you want to contact us, that would be great to have an idea of numbers.
Obviously, if you are thinking you would like a brief demonstration sail with one of our experienced sailors as helm, then please come well before the end time! For the trial sail, it's sensible to wear clothes that are appropriate for the weather at the time and we would suggest soft soled shoes/trainers that don't matter getting wet and some wind proof/shower proof jacket and trousers, if possible. We will provide buoyancy aids for you. It would be prudent to bring a towel and a change of clothes as it is likely that you will get wet to some degree. We have warm showers and changing rooms if needed. There is no charge for a demonstration sail.
We will also tell you about the Club and show you around our facilities. There will be the opportunity to talk to our members, both new and long-standing, and see what is going on on a typical Club sailing day.
The galley will be open all day serving hot and cold drinks, snacks, cakes, confectionery and at lunchtime, sandwiches and light hot meals. Our well-stocked bar will be open from lunchtime. Payment can be made by cash or credit/debit card.
We look forward to welcoming you to our Club!
