About The Event

The members of BYC would like to extend a warm welcome to those wishing to join them at their PTBO event on Saturday, May 4th.

Open to all, we would particularly like to extend a welcome to adults who have never tried sailing before or have taken a break from the sport for many years.

All equipment will be supplied, including a wetsuit and buoyancy aid. Experienced sailors will guide you and ensure you enjoy a safe and fun session on the water.

Keel boats and dinghies will be available and the club is also hoping to offer Stand Up Paddle Boarding. The bbqs will be lit from midday so you are welcome to enjoy a quick bite, a drink and talk to members of the club about their experiences at BYC.
