Push The Boat Out 2017

Loch Venachar’s PTBO Day will be Sat 20th May, 10am – 4pm

The free taster sessions in dinghies or stable Sailability trimarans will run throughout the day. Sessions are about an hour, and open to anyone – adults and children.

Pre-book your session by emailing a booking form to ptbo@venachar.org.uk or contact us @lochvenachar 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.

Where : The club is a short drive from Callander, and offers the most convenient sailing from Doune, Dunblane, Bridge of Allan, Stirling and Falkirk, with no tidal restrictions.

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.

Event costs: Sailing and windsurfing sessions are free.
