FEEL THE THRILL OF BEING ON THE WATER ON THE ISLE OF WIGHT THIS MAY


4 Isle of Wight sailing clubs are hosting ‘Try Sailing’ events this May in association with the Royal Yachting Association’s (RYA) Push the Boat Out campaign.

Each club will be holding one or more days when they open up their doors to welcome families and individuals of all abilities to come and experience the thrill of an outing on the water.

Each Push The Boat Out event will provide all the equipment you need, just bring a change of clothes, sneakers and a towel. Sessions are a minimum of half an hour and can be longer, so ask your nearest club for full details. Clubs will have refreshments available.

Michelle Gent, RYA Programmes Manager, commented:

“We are delighted that for the second year running, Push the Boat Out will be returning for the whole of May.  Open days are a fantastic day out for the whole family and a brilliant opportunity to have a go at some on-the-water activity.  Many venues will also be organising tea, cake and barbeques so it’s a real opportunity to appreciate the club hospitality and get stuck in.

“Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned sailor looking for a way back in, there will be something for everyone – find out what’s going on in your local area and get involved.”

Last year a whopping 39,000 people ‘pushed the boat out’ at over 500 sailing and windsurfing taster sessions throughout the UK.
