Our annual Discover Sailing Day is all about offering you, your friends & family the chance to try sailing and see just how much fun it is!  You have the opportunity to try sailing in a 30 or 45 minute time slot on either a dinghy, a small keelboat or a yacht.  Register online to be allocated a place as the day is very popular and places fill up fast!

Last year our DSD was fantastic!  With beautiful weather, nice wind and almost 250 people, kids & adults, trying sailing for the first time!  It was a great day with a really positive atmosphere and lots of new friends for the NCYC!  Many people, both children and adults, continued on to participate in some of our learn-to-sail courses.
