A chance to get afloat on the East Coast of England

Colne Yacht Club at

Brightlingsea now owns two 22ft Hunter Sonata yachts following

its successful Royal Yachting Association (RYA)-supported bid for lottery funding.

In celebration of the Sport England grant, the club is offering weekend taster sessions to give aspiring sailors of all

ages the chance to get afloat under the guidance of RYA-qualified keelboat

instructors.

If

the bug bites, there are then five preliminary skills clinics. After that, new

sailors can join the club to continue gaining experience.

Once

a certificate of competence has been achieved the new sailors can take a Sonata

out – in return for a contribution towards running costs.
