Britain's most successful Olympic sailor ever is Ben Ainslie. He is a three times Olympic gold and one time Olympic silver medalist and is therefore one of the most successful sailors in history. If this hasn't inspired you enough then this sailing experience is perfect for introducing you to this tricky sport. For this experience you will be learning in either a dinghy, bahia or pico. Each of which are perfect for beginner and use the five essential controls: the sails; underwater foils; the trim; side to side balance of the boat and the choice of route.

Yes I recommend this product.
We got this from a friend as a present and picked early August to try out sailing. They were fantastic at Bala lake. They supplied all clothing (wetsuits, life jackets, coats etc) the only bit I have to buy extra was water shoes, but these were reasonable. The kids had a 15min on shore lesson then took to the water for the remaining time. They loved it. The instructor was patient calm and excellent at teaching. Highly recommend. Thanks

Bought this mainly for my wife who had always wanted to try sailing. Instructor was friendly and got us up to speed with safety and technical information and before we knew it e were on the water. It was great fun even falling overboard added to the experience. Learned some basic stuff and were allowed to try it out, but with our host hot footing between us in his motor boat giving tips and encouragement. Had a great time. Just what we wanted.
