Taster Sessions

New this year is the addition of dinghy sailing taster sessions supported by the RYA, alongside the usual windsurfing, kayaking and paddle boarding (SUP) sessions. PADI will also be bringing diving to Rutland Water and offering ‘have a go’ sessions, so if you’re not playing on top of the water, here’s your chance to have an adventure under it!

Taster sessions are available on Friday afternoon and all day Saturday and Sunday.

  • Dinghy Foiling
  • Windsurfing Foiling

In addition to the above we will be also offering your chance to try dinghy sailing and windsurfing foiling all weekend at the National Watersports Festival (NWF) with the free taster sessions.

Visitors can try foiling under expert supervision at next month’s festival (8-10 June), allowing them to experience the thrill of foiling for themselves!

The dinghy foiling tasters will take place in an RS Aero, adapted with foils by Glide Free Design. Spaces will be limited and allocated to visitors on a first-come first-served basis so arrive early to avoid disappointment.

To take part, sign up to the dinghy and windsurfing foiling taster sessions at the RYA event trailer on the day where you can register your interest today.
