Free Sailing Sessions for Salford Groups this Winter!

Limited number of sessions available

Covid-19 has brought on challenges to us all, one of which being the chance to socialise safely, take part in activities, and engage with our communities. We have seen the huge positive impact our centre and activities have had on individuals, families, and friends by being able to take part in activities on the water for some safe, socially distanced watersports.

As we know the benefits being on the water brings to people, we have teamed up with the Royal Yachting Association and Sport England through the Tackling Inequalities Fund to deliver FREE Sailing taster sessions, to community groups, clubs, and charities based and operating in Salford. This project launched in April 2021 and we have a limited number of sessions left.

We are offering FREE  Sailing taster sessions for community groups and charities for up 3 people (over 8years old). Offering your group, a unique opportunity to experience the quays from on the water whilst trying out a new activity. Sailing and being on the water can be incredibly beneficial to your health and wellbeing, from increased fitness levels to stress reduction.

We will provide the majority of the kit you need and you don’t need any experience to take part. Dinghy Sailing can be physical so basic fitness and mobility levels are required for these sessions (don’t worry you don’t have to be fit! Just enough to move around a boat)

What we provide:

  • Qualified Sailing Instructors
  • Quality Equipment
  • Warm Drink after your session

What you’ll need to bring:

  • Warm clothes and waterproofs in case it rains!
  • Some shoes that can get wet

Sessions are limited and they are limited to one session per group if you would like to apply for a session. Please email the following to

  • Your Name
  • Group Name
  • Location of Group
  • What your group/organisation does and the impact it has on its members.

If you are successful you will be emailed a voucher code and a link to book on to an available session.
