In 2015 thousands of people took to the water. One visitor who experienced a taster at Delph Sailing Club 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.” 

“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” explains RYA Club Support Advisor Jackie Bennetts.

“In 2016 the event will be running 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!”
