Family Sailing – would you like a fun family sailing experience?
Why not all come and sail together in a dinghy or a keelboat in the beautiful sheltered estuary of Falmouth, Cornwall? One of the largest natural harbours in the world!
What is a Family Sailing Session?
With family sailing you can work as a team to get the boat sailing or sit back and relax. Lots of adventures to be had and shores to explore.
You can either all go together on our J24 keelboat (24 foot long) which requires working as a team. This is a dryer boat than the smaller dinghies and we provide waterproofs to go over your clothing.
We also have a fleet of slightly smaller sailing boats for family sailing fun including, Laser Bahias, Laser Stratos, Laser 16. All of these boats are great fun. For the more adventurous, we have the single handed sailing boats (for 1 adult and a small child or 2 children), these are definitely wet boats but a lot of fun for you and your family and the instructor will be very close by teaching you from a rescue powerboat. We provide full length wetsuits and jackets for these boats.
If anyone in your party has any kind of disability or special need then please read here for details on how we can accommodate you. We have adapted boats and a wheelchair friendly powerboat and you can also contact us for more information or to chat anything through.
Parking is easy and free with one of our passes. Mylor Yacht Harbour is easy to access and quieter than Falmouth, the perfect place to launch a sailing dinghy from.
