The RYA Dinghy Trails is a brand new initiative to encourage dinghy sailors to explore the waters of the British Isles. The trails, available for all ability levels, give details of where to launch, information on the local area as well as top safety tips.

It is hoped that the trails will encourage people out onto the water in new and exciting locations and that the information provided will ensure sailors can safely enjoy their time on the water.

Speaking about this new initiative Michelle Gent, RYA Programmes Manager said "We are really excited about launching this new initiative. There are so many beautiful areas of the country where it is possible to take to the water and investigate the shoreline, we hope that these Dinghy Trails will encourage more people into their boats. We are though aware that many clubs are not open to visitors at this current time, as such we are putting all of our efforts into creating more trails so that when the time comes we hope to have a trail in each part of the country."

"The trails will be available shortly to download. In preparation sailors may wish to take the RYA Day Sailing Course, more information can be found here
