About The Event
Our 2 day start sailing weekend is perfect if you're keen to give sailing a go for the first time - no experience needed but fun and laughter guaranteed!
During the course of the weekend you and your fellow crew will have chance to practice steering the yacht under sail and power, learn how to tie the boat up safely when you come alongside and get to grips with your ropework and knots!
This is a relaxed weekend where you can expect to make some great new friends - and where the emphasis is on learning to sail in a fun, supportive environment. Our female RYA qualified skippers are experts at encouraging you to have a go and at building up your confidence - their aim is to make sure you leave by the end of the weekend feeling as excited about the sport of sailing as we are here at GFS and raring to do more with us.
Coming by yourself? Don't worry, we have lots of ladies coming along on their own and chances are that by the end of the weekend you'll be making plans to go sailing again soon with your new-found friends!
Caught the bug and keen to do more? Your next step after this weekend is the 5 day RYA Competent Crew course where you'll learn to become a useful member of crew and even fit in some night sailing practice...
