Pay & Play Sessions

The club’s popular “Pay-and-Play” scheme is an opportunity for anyone interested in
sailing to enjoy a taster session, or for new sailors to gain experience and confidence,
with a qualified Dinghy Instructor at an agreed time and on any dinghy sailing subject of
their choosing.

Use of a club dinghy (Quest, Vision, Wayfarer, Topper, Optibat) is possible, or you
can use your own.

“Pay & Play” is the club’s own scheme to encourage participation in the sport, help
new members and generally improve sailing skills. It is not RYA training, and
sessions cannot count towards the award of any RYA qualification.

As “Pay & Play” is offered as a taster session to non-members to see whether they
might like to learn to sail, non-members can book a session subject to additional
payment of the club’s Guest Sailor fee of £10 per head.

The session is for up to half a day for one or two people and is charged at a flat rate.

The cost covers instructor’s expenses – £35; boat hire if you use a club dinghy – £15; and any temporary membership, so a session for 2 non-members using a club boat would be a total of £70.
