On 20th May, Carrickfergus Sailing Club are offering ‘have a go’ taster sessions for all!
No previous experience is necessary so why not find out how you and your family can get involved with sailing locally.
What to wear
We recommend wearing comfortable clothes and footwear that you don’t mind getting wet (just in case!). If the weather isn’t very warm a windproof coat would be beneficial. A buoyancy aid or lifejacket will be provided by the venue.
On the day
Don’t worry if you’ve not been sailing before! You’ll be taken out on the water with a qualified instructor or an experienced sailor.
The age limit for the smaller boats is 8 years but we can take out younger children accompanied by their parents on the larger Bahia sailing boats.
You could bring a towel and maybe some spare clothes (particularly if you are bringing children). There will be changing facilities on site. Sun hats and sun scream are also important. Refreshments will be available on-site (tea, coffee, cakes etc). We are looking forward to hearing from you and will be able to provide more details and answer any further questions you may have on the day.
I’ve been sailing and want to do more!
Don’t be afraid to get back in touch with us and ask about how to progress.
