RYA Push the Boat Out 2016 aims to get the nation on the water.

Thousands of people of all ages and abilities took to water over nine days to experience sailing and windsurfing with RYA Push the Boat Out 2015.

The national event saw over 340 sailing clubs and training centres up and down the country open their doors to more than 24,000 people with Push the Boat Out 'have a go' taster sessions and open days.

Following on from this success, Push The Boat Out 2016 will take place from 14-22 May.

“RYA Push the Boat Out is all about getting people out on the water locally and giving them the chance to find out just how easy it is to get involved in sailing and windsurfing” explained RYA Club Support Advisor Jackie Bennetts.  

“This year the event has been even bigger extending over nine days with even more clubs and centres taking part, hosting fantastic PTBO taster sessions and open days. We’re now hoping that those who enjoyed their time on the water will be making plans to continue to go sailing!”  

One visitor who experienced a taster at Delph Sailing Club in 2015 said: “We really enjoyed it. Just that sense of being out there powered by mother nature- it was so exciting and really exhilarating! We’ll definitely be coming back.”
