Chelmarsh Sailing Club is having an Open Day on Saturday 5 May from noon until 5pm, when anyone interested in trying sailing can come along and have a go.

The club’s Gordon Bisset says, “This is your chance to have a look at our superb facilities and have a free go in a sailing dinghy. Don’t panic, as there will be an experienced sailor in the dinghy steering a way through calm waters, though you must be over 10 years of age and able to swim (just in case!).

“There’s no need to book, just turn up and try an exciting sport that could open the door to your very own water sports adventure – Sir Ben Ainslie started in a dinghy! If you’re hooked, you could enrol for our four-day beginner’s course in June or August – £50 for juniors and £120 for adults.”

Visit for details. If you can’t make the May event, a later Open Day will take place on Sunday 1 July.
