General Dinghy Sail
A chance to practice your race starts in a less formal manner on shorter course or simply come to have a free sail around the river, the choice is yours.
Aimed at newcomers who haven't sailed before and want to try sailing or those who might not have sailed for a while and want to get back into the sport.
These are fun sessions where we cruise either up or down the river (conditions permitting). We will then stop for lunch and a quick refreshments (usually at a local pub) before returning to the club.
All members are welcome to join.
One to one child/adult ratio. Children under 4 years ride in the safety boat. Children over 4 years may sail in dinghies or use paddleboards.
