Try Sailing, Powerboating, Stand Up Paddle Boarding & Gig Rowing

Regatta Saturday offers a host of opportunities to get afloat and give sailing, powerboating, stand up paddle boarding or gig rowing a try.

Everyone is welcome and the sessions are all free so why not come on down and have a go. Just wear comfortable clothing, sensible shoes (old trainers are perfect), plenty of sun screen and if you have one a spray jacket/waterproof top. Buoyancy aids will be provided if you do not have your own.
