Sailing is a wonderful sport. Whether you are sailing in a small dinghy just big enough for two or a great 40ft luxury yacht big enough for a group of friends, the techniques required for sailing are the same. And best of all, it gives a real sense of achievement if you manage to sail it well.
The sailing taster is quite an involving experience. You will be learning in either a dinghy, bahia, keelboat or pico. Each of which are perfect for beginners and use the five essential controls: the sails; underwater foils; the trim; side to side balance of the boat and the choice of route.
