Make 2017 the year you learn to sail! You know you always wanted to! And there’s still time!
Join in and learn to sail in a friendly club environment. Bexhill Sailing Club is a true members’ club, all our Instructors and Helpers are volunteers who give their time and energy and skills to get you on the water! We look forward to meeting you! If you have already booked your place, why not pop in to the club at a weekend for a chat? Our sailing start on Saturday 18th March. See you then!
Bookings are being taken and there are still places available on our 2017 “Learn to Sail” course. The course fee is £280 which includes full membership of the Club. A deposit of £100 is payable on booking, with the balance payable by 30th April, six weeks before the start of the course.
“Learn to Sail” is open to adults over 18 with little or no previous experience. There is no upper age limit, but a reasonable level of fitness is necessary. The course leads to the RYA Level 1 and 2 Certificate, recognised throughout the world of saiing. You get free use of the Club boats after completing the course, up to the end of the season. Then you get free use of the boats again for the following year if you re-join the Club for 2018.
