Taster Sailing Session Days

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to go sailing and experience the thrill of moving across the water powered only by the wind?. Sailing dinghies is the perfect way to feel the breeze and experience Mother Nature out on the water.  To experience this, Burwain SC has created two Sailing Taster SessionsA 1/2 day ‘Crew for the day’ session and a ‘Full Day’ Taster session. Both give you hands on experience on the water under the guidance of an experienced member of the club. You will be shown the ropes (literally) and spend the day sailing.

Crew for the Day Taster Session – £50

Saturdays 11.30am – 5.00pm
Taster session 1
Our Crew for a Day sessions will provide an afternoon of sailing – and possibly some friendly racing – as crew to an experienced sailor. You will help to launch and recover the boat, learn where to position yourself in the boat to achieve maximum speed, control the sails and generally have a great time.

Learning to Sail
Our Taster Days are designed to give complete beginners an introduction to dinghy sailing. Sessions will be one on one with an experienced sailor in a two person boat. Mornings will be spent on familiarisation with a typical racing dinghy and basic tuition out on the water. In the afternoon you will act as crew, that is sail with the Tutor who will be in charge of helming (steeing) the boat in one of the club races. A great day is guaranteed.
