Sail for a Fiver

The Sail for a Fiver scheme is supported by The Chesil Trust with the objective of encouraging people to participate in sailing by significantly reducing the cost of a taster session to £5 per person. The Sail for a Fiver option can be used on taster sessions or as part of a multi-activity programme.

What to wear

We provide wetsuits and/or waterproofs.  You need to bring a swimming costume or shorts, a pair of soft soled shoes that can get wet, a towel for a shower at the end of the session and a packed lunch if you are here all day. You should also bring your RYA logbook, if you have one.
