Taster FunSails are for everyone. With a fully qualified Yachtmaster & Royal Yachting Association Instructor as skipper you can relax and enjoy the sail or even 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 novices. There's plenty of room for 4 people. She's very stable and easy to sail 

"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 layers

We provide all the safety gear. If you tend to suffer from travel sickness, don't let that spoil the fun. Just ask the chemist for something. You'll soon develop your sea legs the more sailing you do! 

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. All the Bay Sea School sailing events in Morecambe take place from April to September.

Do I need any prior sailing experience?
Definitely not! Taster FunSails are perfect for anyone with an interest in trying out sailing. If you enjoy your Taster FunSail you can learn how to sail the yacht yourself, starting with our 2-day RYA Beginner Course.

Venue for Taster FunSail:
Meet at the garages on Back Calton St, Morecambe (a map comes with the joining instructions). We'll fit you with waterproofs (if you don't have your own) & a life-jacket. Then we'll walk down to the launching slipway with the small inflatable boat. It's a short trip by motor from the Town Hall slipway to Lily on her summer mooring. Sailing takes place off Morecambe promenade between the Town Hall and the Stone Jetty.

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

Sailing on the Sea
Morecambe Bay on the North West coast is a brilliant place to experience sailing on the sea. It's so much more fun than on a lake. The wind tends to be more steady too. On a lake it sometimes swirls around which can be quite confusing for beginners. If you're an inland dinghy sailor you'll love the excitement of tidal sailing with Bay Sea School. You could try a Taster FunSail first or go straight for a 2-day sailing course to convert to yacht sailing on the sea. Contact us if you want some advice on which level to choose.
