There is no charge for participating in open boating, just ensure you are down in time for the briefing as outlined on the programme and email with more details when you have booked onto the session.

Due to the rules on distancing, those from different households will not be able to sail in the same boat for now. We will therefore mostly be offering individual places on our single-handed boats; the Topazes.

Those from the same household will however be asked to sail together in a Quest to maximise the amount of boats we have available for all. Unfortunately we’re not currently able to accommodate non-family members sailing together.

If after booking you are unable to attend, please cancel the booking or contact boating@3rdcb.org.uk so we can ensure the limited places are offered to other members.
