Sailing is a sport that can be enjoyed by just about anyone, young and old. What’s more it doesn’t have to be expensive and there are usually plenty of keen sailors ready to give you advice on how to get started.
Sailing generally falls into two categories, dinghy sailing (small boats) and yachting (big boats!).
You can hire dinghies at Wimbleball Lake, for this you will generally need a RYA (Royal Yachting Association) Level 2, Basic Skills qualification. Alternatively why not get some instruction? Qualified staff are on hand to show you the ropes and get you afloat. Courses are also available on a regular basis.
For experienced skippers there are harbours for yachts at Ilifraconbe, Lynmouth, Porlock Weir, Minehead and Watchet.
