The Princess Royal Sail­ing Club will throw open its doors this Sat­ur­day, en­cour­ag­ing peo­ple of all ages and abil­i­ties to come and try their hand at the sport.

With the start of the sea­son fast ap­proach­ing, the club will host dinghy training and laser coach­ing for those in­ter­ested in learn­ing how to sail.

Princess Royal Sail­ing Club vice com­modore and training direc­tor Paul Har­riss said the club was fo­cused on mak­ing sail­ing more in­clu­sive.

“We want to at­tract more peo­ple to the club,” he said. “We’ve had a blitz in re­cent years to try and build up our ju­nior sec­tion which has been quite suc­cess­ful.

“Par­ents who want to come and sail are wel­come, whether they want to go for a jolly on­the-har­bour run or race; the fam­ily can have fun.”

Qual­i­fied train­ers and the club’s vol­un­teer team will host the dinghy training, with all ages and abil­i­ties wel­come ev­ery Sat­ur­day from 9am.

The ses­sion will fin­ish with a light lunch.

The club will also host Royal Fresh­wa­ter Bay Yacht Club lead laser coach James Ste­wart this Sat­ur­day.

Open­ing day of the sail sea­son is Oc­to­ber 20.
