News about our taster sessions.
Due to COVID-19 we currently have no scheduled Taster sessions for 2020 season. We will update as things change.
Our taster sessions will be approximately 3 hours long and will take the following format:-
- Meet your instructor, a brief introduction to the club,
- Introduction to the equipment,
- Getting on to the board,
- Basic stance and the secure position,
- Carrying out static turns,
- The sailing position.
Your instructor will show you the basics on a simulator and allow each of you to try it for yourself before going out onto the water and having a go on our equipment for approximately an hour. You will then take a break and review your progress and go over those aspects you feel you need to work on again on the simulator. Then back on the water for another spell.
Tuition from an instructor will continue out on the water, he will accompany you either sailing with you or in the safety boat.
You will need to bring a swimming costume, towel and old trainers that you don’t mind getting wet. We will provide a wetsuit and buoyancy aid and all the windsurfing gear.
These sessions are free.
If you would like to be informed of the dates of the next taster sessions please. get in touch.
