Women on Water (WoW) is a great opportunity for women to get out on the water developing confidence and skills sailing dinghies and developing powerboating skills.
We meet on Tuesdays at Lobster Quay in the evening at 18:00, with the first session on 20th April until 7 September 2021. Our aim is to get out on the water in a friendly enjoyable, no pressure environment, sailing dinghies with ample safety cover. We are a mixed ability group, from total beginner to round the world sailors. Our common aim, is to encourage and help each other on the water, whilst also having a giggle and gossip. Members sail in their own boats and we have use of the club dinghies.
There is a small group of adult dinghy sailors who meet Friday mornings at 9.30am in Lobster to go out sailing with safety cover. Some are WoW participants, and others are just sailors keen to get out on the water.
If you would like to find out more please contact Susan Mahood
The Friday morning Adult Recreational Sailing is starting up again on Friday 9th April running through to Friday 29th October.
All of these sessions will be prebook only (you can’t just rock up as we used to do) because we can only take 10 boats out per session. Anyone wanting to prebook will need to contact me firstname.lastname@example.org.
Single handed training
This year we are pleased to offer the opportunity for adult members to learn to sail a single-handed dinghy within a group of other adults. Adult Dinghy Sailing are holding three adult beginner sessions, where you will learn the basics of rigging and sailing a Pico in a safe sheltered environment, with qualified RYA coaches. You will need your own buoyancy aid, an eagerness to learn and the expectation that you may get a bit damp. Sessions will run for four hours starting in Lobster Quay at 9.30am. There are only 10 places on each course so please ensure if you commit you can attend. For further information or to book a place please contact email@example.com.
