TRY SAILING at a Tonbridge Town Sailing Club 'Taster Session'!
Go sailing with a competent sailor, and find out what's involved in dinghy sailing. In a typical session, we will give you a dinghy ride around our beautiful lake, and depending on timings/how many people attend each session, we will also try to involve you in preparing and putting away the boats so you’ll get an overall idea of what’s involved. During the afternoon/tea-break, there will an opportunity to discuss other aspects of sailing, learn to sail courses and what goes on at TTSC, as well as show you around.
Tickets and dates are limited.
 
FAQs
Where is Tonbridge Town Sailing Club?
We are at Haysden Lake, Lower Haysden Lane, Tonbridge. TN11 9BA. As some internet maps don’t show our location accurately, here’s our tip: from the centre of Tonbridge via Brook Street and Lower Haysden Lane, pass Haysden Country Park (Barden Lake) on the right, then continue carefully along Lower Haysden Lane following it around the sharp right and left bends. Now go along the straight road, passing underneath the bridge (the A21) and you will find our access road immediately on the right after that. Please park in the small pay and display car park adjacent to the A21 road bridge and proceed on foot along the gated driveway.

What should I bring?
If you have sailing/canoeing gear, then bring that! We will provide buoyancy aids. Otherwise, suitable clothes and footwear are those that are practical/comfortable and won’t spoil! Depending on the weather, shorts or lightweight trousers (not denim jeans),  a T-shirt, and old trainers will be fine. A fleece and waterproof will be useful. We also recommend a hat/cap that can be tied on, sunglasses and sunscreen. Spectacles will need to be secured.  It’s not a good idea to wear jewellery, watches or carry phones/cameras when sailing.  Long hair will need to be tied back. 
Bring a change of clothes including something warm, and a towel in case you get wet!
A drink is included in the ticket price, but you may want to bring some cash to buy a snack or another drink from our canteen.

What will a typical session be like?
Weather-permitting, we will give you a dinghy ride around our beautiful lake. Depending on timings and how many people attend each session, we will try to involve you in preparing and putting away the boats so you’ll get an idea of what’s involved in sailing. During the tea-break, there will an opportunity to discuss other aspects of sailing, learn to sail courses and what goes on at TTSC, as well as show you around.
 
Who are the taster sessions for?
The taster events are designed for adults to try sailing. If you bring along other family members, including children under 18 years of age, we will do our best to accommodate them but cannot guarantee this. However, please be aware that everyone taking part in these sessions must complete and sign the Registration and Booking form - details below (a parent/guardian will need to sign the relevant sections for those under 18 years of age); please note that children cannot be left unsupervised at any time.

Do I need to fill in any forms?
Yes! It will save time on the day if you can bring the completed form with you. You’ll find it at  click on downloads: the form is called 'Try Sailing With Us' Taster Session Registration Form 2019.

How many sessions can a person attend?
Just one! As we are a small club, this is a limited opportunity. If you like sailing, and TTSC, then we hope you’ll join our club. If you join as a result of attending one of these sessions, your ‘Try Sailing with TTSC!’ ticket price will be discounted from your Membership and Joining Fee (limited to one per family/couple).

Is it weather dependent?
Yes. If the conditions are unsuitable for sailing, we will try to rearrange the session.
 
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
If you can, that’s helpful. Thanks.
 
Is the ticket refundable?
Tickets are not refundable, sorry. However, should you decide to join TTSC in 2019, one Taster Session ticket price will be discounted from our Membership and Joining Fee.
