Course Summary

A half day taster session is ideal for those who are not ready to commit to a full sailing course but would like to experience what sailing is like before they sail. An instructor will take you out onto the water and go through some basic sailing controls.

For those between the ages of 7 and 9 who wish to have a taster session, the Messing About In Boats is ideal for them and is more suited towards younger children.


Course Outline

  • Rigging and launching of boat.
  • Steering
  • Basic sailing skills

Ability After Course

  • Confidence on the water which hopefully inspires you to take a RYA course.
