13 December 2021
Get your kids on the ocean this summer in a fun and friendly environment where they can Try Sailing!

Try Sailing for Kids (7 - 10 years old) is about creating an opportunity in a fun and friendly environment for kids to give sailing a go.

Like many sports, parents are an integral part of the learning and development, they form a key link in the program and are involved from the outset.
