Sailing Taster

This is the perfect way to discover if sailing lives up to the hype! This day session is aimed at anyone over the age of 16.  It will give you a great taste of what it’s like to be on the water and start to take control of the boat. This is a hands-on session where you will be able to take control of the boat – not just be a passenger.


This day session is taken onboard our Lagoon 380 Catamaran and requires a minimum of 4 people.


Certain items from the RYA syllabus will be included, but please note this is not an RYA accredited course, although it will be run by a fully qualified RYA instructor. If you wish to participate in an RYA Sailing Course please click here 

450€ per person
