About The Event

Have a splash on the water and try your hand at sailing on this youth sailing session. This fun intro session is a fantastic way to learn the basics and will consist of a trip in a sailing dinghy with experienced sailors and instructors. A perfect way to test the water before signing up to our Summer Sailing Schemes in July. Enjoy the hospitality on shore at EABC for the rest of the family while you wait.

On arrival you will be kitted out with all the necessary equipment and given a safety briefing and introduction, then it will be time to get into the boats. Instructors will be in boats with participants and anyone wanting to take the helm can have a go and see where the wind takes them!

There are two sessions that have a capacity of 15 people on:
10.30am – 12pm
1pm – 2.30pm
