Taster Funsail Joining Instructions

The start time is listed by the date on the webpage you booked your Taster Funsail.

What you'll need to bring:

Suitable footwear for on-board the keelboat 
Trainers or wellies with non-marking soles, deck shoes, crocks, grippy beach shoes and dinghy boots are all suitable.  It's likely that you'll get wet feet while stepping from the shore into the small boat that ferries you out to the keelboat.  If you want, you can take a change of suitable dry footwear for use aboard the yacht. 

Waterproof jacket and trousers 
Waterproof trousers are particularly useful against splashes getting out to the yacht in the inflatable dinghy.  We can provide waterproofs in adult sizes from small to extra large if you don't have your own. 

Warm clothing
It feels colder out on the sea than on land.  So wear layers such as base layer, microfeece and warmer fleece depending on the overall temperature.  A hat or buff is good for warmth and necessary for keeping longer hair out of your eyes!  It's advisable to bring a change of clothing and a towel just in case you get very wet.  

Gloves
If you have basic & flexible utility gloves with some grip or cycling gloves, bring them with you for ropework.

High SPF suntan lotion
The sun is more fierce out on the water.

Other Information
If you wear glasses, use something to secure them.  If you're concerned about motion sickness please get something from the chemist.  There are pills and patches available.  You get your sea legs eventually but there's no need for this to spoil your early sailing experiences. 

This activity will be led by a qualified RYA Instructor and great emphasis will be placed on safety.  It is your responsibility to comply with all safety regulations and the Terms and Conditions of booking.  We reserve the right to postpone the activity due to bad weather or other unforeseen circumstances.  An alternative date will be mutually arranged.  Unfortunately we cannot cover the loss of a last minute cancellation by you.  If you cancel more than one calendar month before your Taster FunSail you forfeit just the deposit.  If you cancel within one month of the FunSail you forfeit the full fee.

Please provide an emergency contact number when you arrive.
