Here’s your chance to give sailing a try in free taster sessions.

Carsington Sailing Club is inviting people to take to the water in dinghies or have a go at keelboating as part of the nationwide Push The Boat Out celebration which run from May 13 to 21.

There is something for everyone, from families and children to young professionals, couples and retirees.

You will be provided with all the equipment you need and refeshments will be available.

So grab a towel and some old trainers which you don’t mind getting wet and get sailing.
Saskia Clark, Rio 2016 sailing gold medalist, said: “I got into sailing through my local club as a youngster so it’s fantastic to see so many people given the opportunity to discover what the sport’s all about right on their doorstep.

“If you want to inspire your friends and family to giving sailing a go, make sure you put Push the Boat Out in the diary.”
