Get a taste of sailing at Queen Mary

Our sailing and windsurfing taster sessions start in March and an awesome way to get on the water for the first time, if you're new to the sport there's no better way to start your sailing adventure!



If you've always wanted to give it a go our two hour sailing or windsurfing session is just what you need. After a session on land covering the basic boat controls we get you out on the water to have a go yourself. Once you are hooked on the sport of sailing follow the RYA courses to develop your independence on the water.

All of our courses are taught by RYA qualified instructors in groups with a maximum ratio of 4 students to each instructor sailing and 6 to one Windsurfing. Sailing usually in single-handed Picos, with the larger double-handers occasionally used depending on group size and weather.

If you would prefer to have your first experience in a doublehander please contact the office before booking.
