rya_logoHave you ever wanted to give sailing a try but never found the time?  Well now is your chance!  We have taster sessions for those aged 55 and over to come and try out a range of watersports.  You’ll get to attend two taster sessions in each activity, before being able to move on to an entry level course in whichever of the activities you choose (or all of them if you wish!).  Activities on offer will be rowing, sailing and canoeing/kayaking.  No experience is required, so come down and give sailing a try!

The taster session will cover the basics you need to know to get on the water.  Our sessions are carried out in a range of boats, including some which won’t capsize!  We pride ourselves on making our sessions accessible to all and have special equipment available, so if you have any queries or concerns please contact our office.
