Promoted as a relaxed and fun day, participants will undertake sessions in Safety, Rope work, Crewing, mooring and berthing along with a short trip out into the Bristol Channel to learn the all important skill of Man Over Board Recovery! But don’t worry we won’t be throwing any real men into the water – we’ll be using our friendly fenders!
Running from 1000 – 1500 we aim to build confidence, skills and friendships along with having a great time afloat! Taught by experienced and professional instructors this session will take place in our three RIBs ranging from 5.4m to 6.8m.
