  • Description

    Beginner taster sailing sessions for adults at Arnside, which will happen at lower level high tide periods. This is a great way to experience the estuary from the water.

    These are instructor supervised sessions where the instructor will be based in a safety boat. Participants will generally be in single hander boats (Hartley 12s) but options are available to sail with others.

    What to bring
    1. Clothing

    Wear clothing that will keep you warm in the wind, if you get wet.

    Wetsuits are ideal if you have one. The club do not have any available to use.

    A waterproof jacket or a cagoule (cag) are useful to reduce any wind chill.

    Polyester jumpers (i.e. fleeces) are good at keeping you warmer if they get wet.

    1. Footwear

    Please wear suitable footwear that will protect your feet, trainers are ideal, water shoes are OK, but can often get stuck in the wet sand. Flip Flops, Crocs and Wellingtons are not suitable.

    1. Hot Weather

    Please wear suncream and consider appropriate attire for protecting from the sun.

    1. Change of Clothes

    Bring a towel and a change of clothing, in case you get wet. There are limited changing facilities on site i.e. gazebo.

    1. Buoyancy Aids:

    We can provide buoyancy aids, sailing gloves and safety helmets (particularly for children).

     If you have your own buoyancy aid (min 50N, in good condition, appropriate for your size- see the label on the inside), please bring it with you, the instructor will make a decision on its suitability before going on the water.

    1. If you wear glasses

    Consider a glasses strap to help prevent them falling off.

    1. Site Facilities

    There are very basic facilities on site including basic changing spaces i.e gazebo and an eco-toilet. There is no running water, shower facilities or refreshments on site.
