The Leven Yacht Club is once again providing the opportunity for people to try their hand at the sport with its popular Try Sailing Day on Saturday.
Commodore Isaac Mearns said the club was throwing the doors open to welcome anyone interested in hitting the water.
“We welcome people who have maybe sailed previously and are interested in coming back,” he said.
Mr Mearns said that while the club does race, the priority is a family focussed environment to sail for enjoyment.
“The Try Sailing Day is about exclusively getting new people on the water and all the club members are there with the express purpose of getting people in boats and on the water.”
He said there will be a range of vessels for people to learn on.
Mr Mearns said the day is a whole club effort, with many general members bringing their own boats to add to the club’s own fleet of dinghies for people to learn on.
His advice to anyone considering attending was to “definitely come on down”.
“We can cater for all levels of experience. No sailing is necessary, you can spectate on the riverbank.”
“But if you fancy getting on the water we can cater for you.”
Rescue and support craft will be on the water at all times and sailing will take place in the protection of the river.
People aged eight and over are welcome to get on the water.
Participants only require bathers, sun protection and a towel.
The free event at the Leven Yacht Club starts at 11am.
