Meet The Fleet Days

We are delighted to offer a number of opportunities to meet with us and see our impressive fleet of yachts and catamarans.  Due to Covid all ‘Meet The Fleet Days’ are currently by appointment only.  One member of the FlexiSail team will spend an hour with you on one of our spacious catamarans chatting with you and answering any questions you may have about the fleet, membership, ownership or training.

Afterwards you will be free to walk onboard any of our yachts that you would like and see for yourself the fantastic range of yachts we have within the FlexiSail Fleet.

Bespoke Family Trial Sails

Are you interested in membership, but others in your family are unsure about sailing or being on the water?  Or maybe you are new to sailing?  Or perhaps can’t decide between a monohull or a catamaran – then a trial sail with no obligation could be the way forward.  Choose ‘your’ boat which you would like to undertake the trial sail on!

The day will run from 1000 – 1630 and you will spend the day with one of RYA Yachtmaster Instructors who will be in charge of the vessel.  The itinerary is for you to choose or leave it up to the instructor to show you areas of interest which is on our sailing doorstep.

Contact the office for further details and availability.

Catamarans did not cross my mind until your Open Day, I had come for something like Sailfin (Oceanis 43 monohull) that I used to be a member on. What sold me was the segregated “ground floor,” “passenger” daytime accommodation that is great for the less agile. Loads of indoor light, comfort and space all in complete safety. With the sailing activity completely separate up on deck, nobody (including the mobility challenged) can be inadvertently sitting in the way of operations. Melodie is a boat that can one day be a caravan break, pootling sedately around the river with my disabled lad, and the next provide exciting coastal sailing for me. Vivien, the land lubber, likes the fact that it will never heel and spill her wine!
