Try Sailing Day


Discover Sailing. Try Out Sailing at Arnside and see the village from the water. We will be taking people out across the estuary in 15 minute slots at high tide from the slipway by the Albion. The event, which is free is suitable for families, children and adults.

To register for a slot fill in our booking form and we will get back to you with a time to come,

Our clubhouse and bar in the Old Customs House overlooking the estuary will be open afterwards from 1400 for refreshments and to give you and your family a chance to look inside.

What to bring

There is no need to wear special clothing. However, you should wear clothing and footwear that you are happy to get wet. You might need to wade through the water when getting into boats. Footwear should stay on you feet and not fill with water. Crocs, flip-flops and wellingtons are unsuitable. If it is rainy or windy wear a waterproof or windproof jacket.

You might want to bring a change of clothing and a towel, in case you get wet though it would be a case of getting changed on the beach or in your car.

Buoyancy Aids

We provide buoyancy aids, though if you have them bring you own.


Children should be accompanied by parents


You will be sailing across the estuary and back in a boat with an experienced sailor or an instructor
