Get Sailing this March and April

Keelboat courses for beginners run each weekend this March and April. They take place aboard our J80 keelboats, which are stable and fast, easy to control and most importantly don’t capsize.

Course times are 9.30am-5pm on Saturday and Sunday – so join us for a weekend and learn the basics of sailing. All the gear is provided, so why not join us afloat in 2024!
