Lancing Sailing Club to get behind Olympics with taster sessions

LANCING Sailing Club will be among dozens of clubs in the south to showcase the sport in support of Olympic and Paralympic athletes.

The club, in Shopsdam Road, will hold a series of “have a go sailing sessions”, the next of which takes place on Saturday.

A spokesman for the club said: “Anyone who is new to boating and would like to have a taste of what being on the water is like is invited to come along for a free taster session on Saturday at the club between noon and 5pm, sailing in Toppers, Lasers and many other mono-hulls.

“Snacks and drinks will be available, with free coffee and biscuits, and the sessions are open to all the family.”
