ARNSIDE Sailing Club is offering non-sailors a chance to get out on the water in a ‘Try Out Day’ this month.

The event is part of a Royal Yachting Association ‘Push the Boat Out’ promotion to get more people into sailing.

Alasdair Simpson, the Club's Sailing Secretary, said: "When the tide is in Arnside is one of the best places to sail in the area.

“There are outstanding views, a wide estuary in which to sail and more constant winds then in a lake.

“The Try Out Day is aimed at giving non sailors an opportunity to sail - you do not need any experience to join in the fun."

The event takes place on May 18 between 2pm and 4pm.
