Are you interested in Sailing?




Fleet U3A Sailing Group is open to members of any U3A branch and  currently has members from Wokingham, Bracknell Forest, Woking, Maidenhead and Hartley Wintney as well as Fleet. Membership is also open to members of Farnborough & District U3A


The group meets every Thursday morning between May and October at Hawley Lake Sail Training Centre in Blackwater near Farnborough. They sail in Bosuns which they hire from the Centre. All their activities enjoy a programme of courses tailored to suit U3A members with mixed abilities.They have a mix of beginners, people who had done a little bit of sailing in the past but nothing recent, people who had qualified at RYA Level 2 with Fleet U3A, and more experienced members, including a fully qualified RYA Senior Instructor and an Instructor. 


The cost of membership depends on how many members commit to pay the fee on the day - the more members, the cheaper it will be. At the moment we expect the cost to be about £64 for the whole year. This works out at about £2.40 per sailing session per person.


They are running a coffee morning/ sign-up meeting at 10:30 am on Thursday 6th April at Hawley Lake Sailing Centre GU17 9LP.
