Clubs across the capital to throw open doors to newcomers next month
Sailing clubs and watersports centres across London will be offering free and low-cost opportunities to take to the water next month.
From May 9-17, clubs will offer sailing and windsurfing taster sessions introducing newcomers from all walks of life to watersports.
The programme is part of an initiative from the Royal Yachting Association called “Push The Boat Out” and has proved successful in the past with over 17,000 people taking part last year.
Clubs in the local area taking part in the event include:
Docklands Sailing and Watersports Centre
Shadwell Basin Outdoor Activity Centre
Shadwell Sailing Club
Stubbers Young Mariners Sailing Club
All that is required for any of the sessions is a change of clothes, soft soled shoes and a towel with the clubs providing the rest.
Some event may require booking in advance and refreshments will be available on the day.
