"A Life-changing experience"

Treat yourself
Taster Sails are for everyone. With a fully qualified Yachtmaster & Royal Yachting Association Instructor as skipper you can relax and enjoy the sail or start to 'learn the ropes' and have a go at sailing the boat yourself.

The boat
'Lily' our 22 ft yacht is ideal for adult beginners. There's plenty of room for 4 people. She's easy to sail & can't capsize! A small inflatable boat takes you from the shore out to 'Lily' just off the promenade.

"Everything was brilliant. A sense of great satisfaction. Thank you, was perfect."

What do I need?

  • suitable footwear: non-marking trainers, pumps, wellies, crocs, dinghy boots or deck shoes
  • waterproof trousers & jacket (we can provide these if necessary in adult sizes from small to extra large)
  • warm clothes

We provide all the safety gear. Full joining instructions will be sent automatically when you book.

Can children come?
The yacht is ideal for adults but children can come too, if accompanied by a parent or carer.

How long does it last?
You'll need to allow at least 3 hours from start to finish. Sailing in Morecambe Bay takes place around the time of high water which changes every day. With just 4 places available on every Taster Sail, pre-booking is essential. Sailing takes place from April to September.

Do I need any prior sailing experience?
Definitely not! Taster Sails are perfect for people who have never had an opportunity to sail before. If you enjoy your Taster Sail and want to know more, you can learn how to sail on our 2-day RYA courses.

Meet at the garages on Back Calton St, Morecambe, Lancashire, North West. Sailing takes place close to shore off Morecambe promenade between the Town Hall and Stone Jetty.

"All excellent. Very good equipment ie boat, safety gear, engines, lifejackets."

About to go on a cruising holiday?
Want to go sailing before your cruising holiday or Day Skipper practical course? Taster Sails are for everyone not just beginners! They make great gift vouchers too.

Best way to learn to sail
It's easier and quicker to learn to sail on a small boat like this because it's lighter and more manoeuvrable than a large cruising yacht. You'll get a good feel for all the basics in just 4 days of tuition.

Already a sailor?
Book a Taster Sail for some personal advice on what to do next with your sailing. You'll have great fun sailing on the Bay too!

Tidal Experience
Morecambe Bay on the North West coast is a brilliant place to experience tidal sailing. You'll learn so much about the tides here. If you're an inland dinghy sailor you'll love the new challenge of sailing on the sea.
