Discover Sailing Day

On Sunday 8th August, 10am-4pm, Dovestone Sailing Club at Greenfield is taking part in the annual RYA Discover Sailing event for people new to sailing. Discover Sailing offers the chance for people considering taking up sailing to have a go, for about 30 minutes, with a fully qualified instructor at the helm. All equipment is provided. Sailing Is a fantastic activity for people of all abilities and ages and of course, it is great to get the kids involved. Sailing at Dovestone isn’t expensive – family membership is less than £5 a week and training courses are available. Once suitably qualified, new members can use the club’s boats before deciding if they wish to buy their own. You should bring a towel and maybe some spare clothes (particularly if you are bringing children).There will be changing facilities on site. Sun hat and sun screen are also important. You can purchase refreshments on site so a small amount of cash maybe handy. Dovestone Sailing Club is looking forward to hearing from you and will be able to provide more details and answer any further questions you may have. Taster sessions can be pre-booked via Club Commodore Andy Robinson on 01457 873000 or send an email to [email protected] Here's a poster to display
