Push The Boat Out
Loch Venachar's PTBO Day will be Sat 26th May, 10am – 4pm
The free taster sessions in dinghies or stable Sailability trimarans will run throughout the day. An experienced sailor will take you out in a stable sailing dinghy. Sessions are about an hour, and open to anyone – adults and children.
ADDITIONAL BOOKING SLOTS - We reached our original capacity, but have now opened up some more adult and family slots, which you can book below. Scroll down to find the available slots. If you have any queries, please get in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org or 07398 630 695.
The day is ideal for beginners wanting to learn about sailing, those who used to sail and are looking to take it up again, or as part of a family day out in the beautiful Trossachs. It is also a great opportunity for regular sailors to find out about the club. There will be members and instructors to answer your questions about our friendly club and the RYA sailing courses we are running this summer.
Age restriction: Sessions are available for ages 5 and upwards. Young children should be accompanied by a guardian on the boat.
What to bring: Clothing suitable for sailing including a wind proof and splash proof cagoule and footwear such as old trainers that you don't mind getting wet. It will be a bit cooler on the water, so bring an extra layer or two, and a hat. Also a change of clothes just in case.
Avoid jeans and wellies. In general artificial fibre/sports clothes are more comfortable than cotton.
We supply buoyancy aids.
Sailing and windsurfing sessions are free, but must be booked. Scroll down to your preferred timeslot below. Each dinghy can take up to 3 adult visitors, or 1 adult and 3 smaller children. Please tell us how many there are in your group, and the ages of any children.
The booking system will ask you to create an account. The account is free and your contact details will only be used for organising the PTBO event.
Once you make your booking here you will be sent a registration form to give more details so we can make the experience enjoyable for everyone, and to make sure you understand what is involved. Please send the form back as soon as you can so that we can plan for your visit. You don't need to sign the form now, we will have a hard copy for you when you arrive at the club.
You will also get a fact sheet for the day, pulling together directions, advice on clothing, and answers to other frequent questions.
