Taster Sessions


RYA advice currently prevents us from putting instructors in boats with students, once this advice is relaxed we plan on resuming Tuition, Taster Sessions, Kids Weeks, Swallows & Amazons etc.
Until we have some indication of when this may be we are not taking any tuition bookings.

Ever fancied just ‘giving it a go’ without wanting to commit to a 2 day sailing course, or maybe you haven’t sailed for a while and would appreciate a little tuition to help you get back on the water?

The Glenridding Sailing Centres’ gently curved beach forms a sheltered bay in full view of the centre, providing an ideal setting to teach everyone from complete beginners to experienced sailors wishing to perfect their skills.

You can choose from either slow and steady, like our beautiful Traditional Boats you can see here or fast and (potentially!) wet dinghy sailing!

Our Taster Sessions are run by experienced and friendly Instructors, who will pitch the session at your level. Booking essential and children under the age of 6 go free.

Gift Vouchers are available for all our Courses – and you can now buy online!

“…From the moment we arrived we had friendly and professional service from all the staff in general and Steve in particular. Free tea or coffee accompanied a brief theory lesson and then it was straight out on the water. The instruction was absolutely first class with just the right blend of instruction and encouragement to enable this pupil to feel as though he could fly, sailing close to to the wind both figuratively and literally. What a buzz. I can’t wait to sail again. Although Carol didn’t want to sail she was looked after too and offered unlimited coffee and a warm and dry place to drink it….” – Ady H
