Club Open Day 2018    Saturday 12th May


Spinnaker Sailing Club will once again open its doors to the public on Saturday 12th May for a happy, fun-filled, breezy and, with luck, mainly sunny day. Some of the questions we shall be here to answer include –

  • Do you want to start sailing?
  • Would you like your children to have sailing lessons?
  • Perhaps you want to come back to sailing after a break?
  • Do you currently sail on the sea but your free time rarely seems to match the tide times?

On offer will be sailing and kayaking sessions, family fun activities including a Treasure Hunt and delicious burgers and hotdogs fresh off the BBQ. Members and staff will be present to answer any questions about membership and/or training, and we will be pleased to welcome any new members either as annual members or as the 6-week taster memberships that will be on offer.

Those who have wondered what it is like to drive a Safety boat will be able to take to the wheel for 10 Minutes and have a go. 

This year’s Open Day will again be held in conjunction with the RYA push the boat out campaign. Watch the video, filmed here at Spinnaker. 

If you have been IMG_1237thinking of learning to sail but are not 100% sure if it is for you can come down and let the club’s members show you the ropes.

Spinnaker is the New Forest’s best kept secret, and the Open Day is always a great day for you to come along and find out what we are all about. Other activities on offer during the day are the chance to head out on to the water in a wide range of boats, book children onto a taster session or one of the RYA courses we run throughout the year, get faces painted and become a pirate, and besides all that a chance to get a feel for the club and what is on offer. If you can not join us on the day, pop in sometime and have a chat with our great office team, or visit our stand at this year’s New Forest Show.
