People can sail into spring for free later this month in Daventry, by trying their hands at sailing.

Rugby and Daventry Sailing Club, based on Drayton Reservoir in Daventry (by Middlemore), hosts its early season Try Sailing Day on Saturday April 16 from 2pm to 4pm.

Anyone, of all ages, abilities and experience, is welcome to go along and get out on the water (weather permitting) with an experienced club member while getting a taste for all the activities at the club.

The Try Sailing Day welcomes people who may never have even considered stepping into a boat before, people who already know they would like to learn to sail but want to sample the sport first or sailors who may be new to the area and are looking for a club or perhaps haven’t sailed for some time.

If you can’t make the Try Sailing Day, the club is also running pre-booked ‘taster’ sessions on Sunday May 22, as part of the nationwide RYA Push The Boat Out ‘have a go at sailing’ festival, and another free Try Sailing Day on Saturday July 23.
