Taster Session Overview

A taster session is the ideal introduction for learning to sail for novices to build confidence and familiarise you with some basic sailing techniques.  You can get to grips with sailing accompanied by a qualified instructor.  By the end of the session you will have tasted the excitement and freedom of sailing with the natural power of the wind allowing you to decide if you would like to take this wonderful activity any further.  Your instructor can advise you of your options.

These sessions are booked in on demand so please contact us for availability.  Sessions are normally a morning or afternoon option with some sunset sessions available during June, July and August.
