The cost is £7 for 15th Members and £10 for all others for a morning or afternoon session (approx 2.5 hours). The cost goes towards the fees for the club, insurance and maintaining the boats/ equipment.

Children will need to bring a change of clothes, a towel and a named bag to put wet clothes/ gear back into, water shoes are also recommended and a windproof jacket is essential on colder days. It is best if they have a wetsuit but we understand if they do not. NO Jeans or Crocs are permitted.
All young people over the age of 9 years old and are competent (can swim 50m in a buoyancy aid) swimmers will be able to come along and sail/kayak.

Unfortunately at this time we are unable to take non-swimmers for safety reasons.
