There are available single and double handed boats available so that the less experienced can sail with the more experienced and have a great time on the water while learning lots.
After a little practice members can also sail in the MSC Sunday race series and take part as a member of the team in open events and camps at different clubs.
Members will also learn how to repair, maintain and prepare sailing boats, basic seamanship and navigation, laws of the sea and dinghy racing rules.
Sailing is a great sport for developing self-confidence, teamwork and an ability to deal with problems and challenges in a calm and efficient manner. You can also meet some great people and through shared experiences and challenges often make real friends for life.
