"A Life-changing experience"
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.
'Lily' our 22 ft yacht is ideal for adult beginners. There's plenty of room for 4 people. She's easy to sail & also has a huge advantage - she'll never capsize!
"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. 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. When you book, make a note of your start time below. 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 yourself, starting with our 2-day RYA Beginner Course.
Venue for Taster FunSail:
Meet at the garages on Back Calton St, Morecambe where we'll fit you with waterproofs (if required) & a life-jacket. Then we'll take the small inflateable boat to the promenade. It's a short trip by motor from the Town Hall slipway to Lily on her mooring. Sailing takes place close to shore off Morecambe promenade between the Town Hall and the Stone Jetty.
"All excellent. Very good equipment i.e. boat, safety gear, engines, lifejackets."
Best way to learn to sail
If you want to learn how to sail it's much easier on a small boat like Lily because she's lighter and more manoeuvrable than a large cruising yacht. You'll can get a good feel for all the basics in just 4 days of tuition on our Beginner courses.
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. If you're an inland dinghy sailor you'll love the new challenge of tidal yacht sailing with Bay Sea School. You could try a Taster FunSail or perhaps go straight for a Level 3 Better Sailing course.
