Fancy having a go?

If you want to find out what sailing is all about then the perfect way is to arrange to come along to the club and go out on the water with one of our club members for a Taster Session (which normally lasts for about 1½ hours) for which there is a charge of £15.

If you wish to arrange to come for a Taster Session please e-mail your contact details (ideally including your mobile phone number) off to us at training@hlsc.org.uk.  We run taster sessions from time to time depending on the interest shown and also when there is a suitable ‘slot’ in our club’s other activities.

Normally we arrange for these taster sessions to be held on either Sunday mornings or, during the summer months, Friday evenings.  However the club is currently shut for its winter break.  Our 2018 sailing season starts on the first Sunday in March and so we won’t be able to run any Taster Sessions until mid-March 2018.

Most of our club members got themselves ‘stuck into the sport’ by their own self-motivation and hence by learning by their own mistakes.  However, following your Taster Session, if you feel the need to follow it up with some formal training sessions then we can arrange for you to go on an RYA Start Sailing course (Level 1).

We can provide you with much more information about how to get going with dinghy sailing when you come along for your Taster Session.
