Grafham Water Sailing Club is hosting a 'Try a Youth Boat' day on Monday 2nd May where the 29er Class among other youth boats will be there for sailors transitioning from Junior Classes to try.

Sailing sessions are due to start at 10:30 and finish at 4:30pm. The 29er Class will have a number of experienced sailors on hand to allow new comer sailors to have a go.

We are extremely thankful to Ovingtons who are facilitating this weekend with the loan of 2 boats. There is no need to pre book sessions but we will be offering sessions on a first come first served basis.
