Recreational Sailing 6
Sunday 05 February 2023, 11am - 5pm
Recreational Sailing is open to members of all abilities, and is perfect for people who want to sail in a relaxed environment. Recreational Sailing also provides the perfect opportunity to work towards achieving your RYA Level 1 or Level 2 qualification! If this is something you are interested in, chat to our committee and we will fill you in with the details.
We provide all transport - leaving UEA from the LCR turning circle (just in front of the Hive) at 10am and getting back around 3pm. We will drive to Wroxham broad (25 mins) and spend about 3 hours sailing, with a break for lunch. We also provide all the necessary safety equipment such as wetsuits and buoyancy aids, but you are welcome to bring your own if you have it.
All beginners will be partnered with more experienced sailors, and there is the option of sailing with a friend - just let us know if there is someone you want to be partnered with!
Recreational Sailing costs £3.00 - this helps cover our fuel costs. If you want to complete an RYA course, there will be an additional charge of £20.00 once you gain the relevant qualification.
We make these sessions as accessible as possible, but unfortunately there are still some limitations. If you are concerned or have additional accessibility requirements, please get in touch and we will do everything we can to adapt the session (if needed).
You will need to bring:
Swimming kit (for under the wetsuit)
Shoes you don’t mind getting wet
Warm clothes for afterwards (+ maybe a change of shoes!)
Any food and drink for the day
Waterproof jacket/suncream/sunglasses/water etc
Please try to be at the LCR turning circle 15mins early and let us know if you can no longer make the session - just send us a quick email or DM! Similarly, feel free to ask any questions about the session, we would be more than happy to help.

Sailing is a high-risk sport and by agreeing to take part you accept the fact that, although we will do everything we can to minimise this risk, it is inherently dangerous.
