Frensham Pond Sailability

About

Taster Sail:
Before you decide to become a member of Frensham Pond Sailability, you can experience up to 3 Taster Sails. In these taster sessions, you will normally be taken out by an experienced sailor in a two-seat Hansa 303 dinghy. You may take a maximum of three taster sessions. The first session is entirely free of charge. The second and third sessions cost £6 each but these fees are recoverable against the FPS subscription should you decide to become a member.
If you decide sailing is for you after one or two taster sessions, you can become member immediately.

Youth and Progress Groups:
A very active Youth Group meets on Saturday mornings between April and October for young people over 10 years old. A Progress Group also runs on Saturday mornings catering for young adults. As well as sailing and sail training there are also social activities, such as the Youth Fun Day.
