Aimed at beginners these courses provide a short introduction to the sport of sailing.
By the end of the course, participants will have a basic understanding of boat handling techniques and background knowledge enabling them to get afloat under supervision.
ADDED BONUS! Enjoy a sailing experience on our reservior - you will be surprised how nice it is!
If you become a member there is support available to get you on the water such as Back on the Water, Coaching and Ladies Fun days.
At HSC we offer Try Sessions for Groups, Schools, Families or individuals on Tuesday evening
Taster Sessions are a great way to get on the water for the first time or to try out a new sport. We run taster sessions regularly throughout the early part of the year 4th May to 14th July, aiming to be on the water for 6:30pm and last approximately 1½ hours.
Groups may purchase a session and pay a deposit of £50 through Webcollect to confirm the booking. Junior fees are £6 each Adult fee of £8.00. Group organisers are expected to pay any additional balance at the event. Refunds are only available if Hollowell Sailing Club must cancel the booking.
Please aim to arrive at the clubhouse by 6:00 to 6:15pm to allow us time to get you kitted out for the evenings fun. Obviously the weather conditions on the day can dictate how long we are on the water for. Sessions are open to groups of all ages from 8yr upwards.
Snacks and hot drinks are available in the clubhouse.
This maybe the course for you....
So it's the beginning of the new season. Now is the time to get back on the water and GO sailing. This course acts as a refresher for those who feel they may need a hand, or who want to brush up their skills.
This year we will offer three courses running on Thursday evenings, and each course will last for three weeks. We will tailor each course to the participants but we should be able to offer on each course:
a) Basic sailing skills ( rigging, tacking and gybing)
b) Better sailing skills (coming alongside a pontoon, Man over Board, slow boat handling skills)
c) Basics of racing.
We finish each session just in time for you to enjoy a beer (glass of wine) and the legendary Thursday evening meal.
Ideally you will use your own boat, but if you want to book a Club boat you can now do that on-line as well. Half price hire for BoW.
