Sailing for Families and Groups

Return to Sailing

An opportunity to blow away the cobwebs and top up on your sailing skills, getting back on the water, in single or double handed dinghies.

This course is aimed at groups of friends and family, up to a maximum of 5 people and will run over two days. 

Participants will have proven sailing experience whether sailing with Cobnor Activities Centre or through evidence of a RYA Stage One or Level One award.

Over the two days participants will receive instruction linked  to the RYA syllabus, enabling them to improve their personal sailing. The session will be led by a senior member of staff and all participants will be asked to support the Centre with strict social distancing and personal hygiene to include regularly washing of hands and sanitising of equipment.
