Book a Taster of Cambridge Sailing or Windsurfing
Book a taster of Cambridge sailing or windsurfing. Whether you are a complete novice or have some previous experience, you will enjoy one of these half-day sessions at the start of the Michaelmas Term. You will also get a good idea of what sailing and windsurfing are like at Cambridge.
So come along, meet current members and sail in our Fireflies or use our windsurfing kit. We will have experienced members on hand to instruct and ensure an enjoyable experience if you are new to either of the sports. The session cost is £15 – this includes £10 day membership plus transport costs. If you decide you want to do more you can join the Club for a discounted £40 annual membership (normally £50).

The sessions take place at Grafham Water Sailing Club (40mins drive from Cambridge). Transport will leave from Harvey Court, West Road, Cambridge. Food is not included on the day, so bring your own or else buy what you fancy from the Grafham catering service.
Some Taster Advice
If you book a taster of Cambridge sailing or windsurfing, you can get cold while sailing, so bring warm clothes! Headgear is also useful in dinghies if you are not used to ducking under the boom. Non-slip footwear that can get wet is essential. A change of clothing, particularly trousers, can improve your quality of life after sailing.
If you are windsurfing you will be wearing a wetsuit, but something for your feet is highly desirable (old trainers, etc.). We have some wetsuits and buoyancy aids available, though if you have your own please bring them with you!
Safety: Inland waters can sometimes harbour infections. Although the Club has never experienced a problem at Grafham, it is good practice to cover any cuts with a waterproof adhesive dressing – and wash hands before eating.
