Carrickfergus Sailing Club is inviting local people to ‘push the boat out’ and try dinghy or keelboat sailing next weekend.

Whether you’re completely new to the sport or looking to get back on the water, RYA Push the Boat Out, which takes place throughout May, is the perfect time to give it a go.

The nationwide event will see thousands of people taking part in the sailing or windsurfing activity, with open days and taster sessions taking place at sailing clubs and centres across the country.

“Sailing can be as physical or as relaxing as you want to make it; you can sail with others or on your own, do it competitively or potter about and just enjoy the gentle escape of being outside in the elements,” the club said.

“We’re inviting the local community to come down to have a go at sailing, see what Carrickfergus Sailing Club has to offer and get involved.”

There will be two sessions starting at 10am and 2pm on Saturday, May 12. The sessions are open to adults and children over the age of eight. Booking is essential.
