Sailing Taster

A sailing taster is a great way to dip your toe in to the awesome sport of sailing. We will spend a bit of time on the water and teach you about the basics of the sport as well as letting you know how to get into it.

The tasters usually last two to three hours and are just designed for you to get a feel for sailing Sailing1to see if it is a sport that you want to pursue further. The sessions will be taught in stable boats specially made for beginners, which depending on the weather could be Harley H12s or RS Ventures.

The next step after the taster session is an RYA L1 Sailing course for adults or RYA Youth
Stage1/Stage2 course for kids.

We can provide wetsuits, buoyancy aids and splash tops, so you should be fully kitted out
on the water. We ask that you bring some footwear that you don’t mind getting wet as well as some for wearing after you have changed.

Youth Sailing North WalesAlso bring a towel, and some warm clothes for after we come off the water. Also a coat can be a good idea if it is cold and some sun cream for if the sun is out, as believe it or not it can get hot enough to burn here in Wales! We have excellent changing and shower facilities on site at Porth Eirias, there are also lockers that accept a £1 coin (and even give it back afterwards.) A packed lunch is a good idea, although it is a short walk/drive into town and we have a cafe on site.
