Week commencing 24 July 2023: Adult Start Sailing (click to book)
All courses are 09.30am – 4.30pm
Please be aware that weather conditions mean that we don’t always get on the water when we desire, however, as there is a certain amount of theory to all these courses, we try to work around the weather as best we can making the most of what we receive.
