Looking to spend time with family and enjoy the great outdoors? Have you ever considered what might be possible on-the-water? And it’s probably closer to home than you think! The RYA’s Push the Boat Out campaign is returning this spring to offer you the chance to try sailing or windsurfing for little or no cost. No experience necessary!
What is Push the Boat Out?
Push the Boat Out is a series of open days offering free or low cost ‘Try Sailing’ opportunities around the UK. More than 350 RYA affiliated clubs and training centres will be opening their doors to the local community to try sailing.
Two clubs in Guernsey are taking part

The GYC will be open all day to non-members to highlight the activities that take place, including demonstrations on the pond and on the sea. In addition we have teamed up with other marine leisure users around the Castle to show the variety of sports and recreational activities available.
Guernsey Sailing Trust

All welcome to try dinghy sailing, keelboat sailing and powerboat tasters. Sailability options are also available for disabled sailors. There is also sailing on the Model Yacht pond for age 5-12 year olds.
