After an extremely successful Discover Sailing Day, Concord and Ryde Sailing Club is running a Learn to Sail holiday camp from Monday 20th Jan – Wednesday 22nd January 2020.

The Discover Sailing Training Centre at Concord and Ryde Sailing Club ensures the camp is very informative and lots of fun. Safety equipment (lifejacket), lunch, morning and afternoon tea, insurance and Club Membership is all included.  All they need to bring is a pair of closed in shoes/sneakers, sun sense and a change of clothes,

The three-day course runs from 9.30 am to 4pm, costs $250 per child and if more than one member of same family attends there is a 10% discount.  It is aimed at children who can swim 50m in deep water unassisted, 8-12 years of age. No previous sailing experience is necessary. Groups of friends are invited to join up … the more the merrier.
