Etherow Country Park Sailing Club

Push The Boat Out

Each year before our Learn to Sail course, we hold an Open Day when members of the public can come out on the water with experienced sailors. We run the event under the  banner of the RYA Push The Boat Out promotion.

There is no charge and we provide buoyancy aids and some over-wear to keep splashes away but we advise everyone taking part to wear old clothing and shoes,  bring along a change of clothes and footwear.

You can expect to spend at least 90 minutes being registered, briefed, getting kitted up,going out on the water and de-briefed. To avoid waiting, we have a slot-booking process with two sessions in the morning and two more in the afternoon. You are welcome to stay longer and chat with our member volunteers about the club and sailing.

One thing nobody can predict is the weather but we can usually ensure that you get a safe and fun experience as we push the boat out.
