Sailing Social for supported young people

  • 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
  • Frensham Great Pond

This event is supported young people aged from 10+.

Frensham Sailability say:

“Our sailors frequently comment that, when sailing, they are freed from their limitations and can compete on equal terms with any able-bodied sailor. We help you do this by providing a range of specially designed boats and the necessary support facilities. With the help of our experienced volunteers, you can learn to sail, or enjoy sailing again, and develop your skills as far as you wish – to international competition level if you want!”

No previous sailing experience is necessary however, use of hands is required.

New sailors can go out with an experienced ‘buddy’ who will explain what sailing involves. However, our mission is to encourage independent sailing as much as possible. Frensham Pond provides a uniquely safe environment for this.

This is an opportunity for your children to experience sailing and the freedom of being in control of their boat. They will have the opportunity to go out on a 1-1 smaller boat with an experienced volunteer and also in a bigger group boat if their mobility allows.”

All safety equipment and wet weather gear is provided, along with access to the clubhouse where parents and carers are welcome to stay for the duration or can spectate from dry land.

Please bring along a packed lunch (we will provide cake and snacks), change of clothes, and a towel (good old British weather may mean we sail in the rain).

This opportunity is suitable for young people aged 10 and over that would enjoy socialising with others.
