PUSH THE BOAT OUT and try sailing this May.

Hastings and St Leonards Sailing Club is inviting you and your family to come and try sailing for free on Saturday the 25th of May.

From 10am until 4pm, weather permitting, our most experienced sailors will be on hand to take you out and give you a taste of sailing. It is absolutely free, all you have to do is show up and put your name down.  All welcome aged five and up.

Whether you’re completely new to the sport or looking to get back on the water, RYA Push the Boat Out is the perfect time to give it a go.

This nationwide event will see hundreds of people taking part in the sport with open days and taster sessions taking place at sailing clubs and centres across the country.

Sailing can be as physical or as relaxing as you want to make it, you can sail with others or on your own, do it competitively or potter about and just enjoy the gentle escape of being outside in the elements.

Important information.

Children must be older than five. Younger children must be accompanied by an adult and must be able to fit into our smallest size of buoyancy aid. Additionally, sailing with younger children is dependent on the conditions and at the discretion of the boat helms.

Please bring clothes you don’t mind getting wet in, particularly your shoes. We also recommend bringing some warm clothing, even if it is a hot day. It’s often a bit colder out at sea.

As the event is very weather dependent we do not take bookings. We run on a first come first serve basis and so all you have to do is turn up.

Please email ptbo@hastingssc.org If you have any queries about attending Push The Boat Out at the Hastings & St Leonards Sailing Club this may.
