The Princess Royal Sailing Club will throw open its doors this Saturday, encouraging people of all ages and abilities to come and try their hand at the sport.

With the start of the season fast approaching, the club will host dinghy training and laser coaching for those interested in learning how to sail.

Princess Royal Sailing Club vice commodore and training director Paul Harriss said the club was focused on making sailing more inclusive.

“We want to attract more people to the club,” he said. “We’ve had a blitz in recent years to try and build up our junior section which has been quite successful.

“Parents who want to come and sail are welcome, whether they want to go for a jolly on-the-harbour run or race; the family can have fun.”

Qualified trainers and the club’s volunteer team will host the dinghy training, with all ages and abilities welcome every Saturday from 9am.

The session will finish with a light lunch.

The club will also host Royal Freshwater Bay Yacht Club lead laser coach James Stewart this Saturday.

Opening day of the sail season is October 20.
