Try Yachting

General Course Information

Our Try Yachting days offer anyone, young or old, the opportunity to have go at sailing.

These are fun and relaxed days and without any formal itinerary. They are aimed at those who simply just want to see if they enjoy sailing before perhaps committing to a longer course.

No previous experience is necessary and whilst you are encouraged to get involved you are free to do as much or as little as you wish.

After introductions and a short safety briefing you will be on the water by 1030 and within half an hour of leaving the dock you will be out in the Solent.

The skipper will run through all the essential elements of sailing so you get a broad introduction to the sport, including taking the helm and how to trim the sails.

Lunch is normally taken whilst sailing so as to make the most of the day but there is always the option to moor up in Cowes if every one onboard chooses.

After an enjoyable sail in the afternoon you will be back on the dock ready to depart by 1600
