Our Push The Boat Out Event which gives members of the public an opportunity to try sailing during May will be held at Carrickfergus Sailing Club on Saturday 12th May as part of the RYA National Push The Boat Out Event 2018.

Two taster sessions will be held from 10 am to 12 noon and 2 pm to 4 pm and participants will be able to try either dinghies or keel boats depending on their selected preference. Come and join us! RYA Push The Boat OUT is a fantastic opportunity for you to try and experience sailing.

All necessary safety equipment will be provided, but it is advised to wear suitable outdoor clothing and footwear such as trainers. Dinghy participants are also advised to bring a change of clothing just in case they get wet. We have some wetsuits available for children between the ages of 8 and 12 should they prefer to borrow these. Should it be a wet day you should also have some waterproof clothing (jacket & trousers) to keep you dry. You should also be aware that even on a warm day ashore it may be cold out on the water due to the wind chill factor so it is always better to be over dressed and warm rather than be cold.

The sessions will hopefully allow you to get a taste for sailing, try out our facilities and chat to our members about the benefits of being a member of Carrickfergus Sailing Club

The sessions are open to adults and children over the age of 8 on the day.

Pre booking is essential and numbers will be limited to a maximum of 20 for each session. Follow this link to book now.
