Sailing Taster

Course Overview

Our sailing taster is perfect for someone who’s never been sailing before or hasn’t sailed in a long time. You will be with one of our experienced instructors in one of our large RS Ventures and, weather permitting, should be able to go on an adventure around Chichester harbour, picking up knowledge and experience as you go. The session will begin with the instructor at the helm and will progress you onto helming the boat for short periods of time.

What to bring

Make sure you have the appropriate clothing for the weather. A wetsuit is encouraged, footwear you’re happy to get wet, layers if it’s cold, sun cream and a hat if it’s not and a buoyancy aid. Alternatively, the buoyancy aid can be rented from the club for a small fee.


During the summer, the snack bar will be open to purchase snacks, drinks, and lunch. The restaurant will also be open for dinner in the evenings.


Our Dunes and Stocker accommodation blocks offer a range of different rooms. From our admiral’s cabin through to the cadets’, there will be something suitable for everyone.


We have a large carpark onsite and down our causeway. However, if you are in a motorhome you will have to find alternative parking for overnight stays.
