Join some of Britain's top sailors on the water this Saturday 24 May!
Northampton Sailing Club is hosting the Volvo Sailing Academy Midland edition, part of Volvo Car UK's quest to 'get the country sailing', offering guests the chance to try dinghy sailing, windsurfing and stand up paddle boarding.

The initiative offers friends and family of all ages and abilities the exclusive opportunity to join some of British Sailing Team's best sailors and coaches on the water for a fun introduction to a range of water-based activities. 

Learn from the best

This weekend, double Olympic 470 silver medallist Joe Glanfield turned British Sailing Team 470 women's coach, will be on hand to introduce first time sailors to the fundamentals of the sport. 

Joe will be joined by Frances Peters, one of the UK's top 49er FX sailors, a new Olympic class for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games and Sophie Weguelin, who is currently ranked 3rd in the 470 Women's International Sailing Federation World Rankings. They will both be taking time out of their busy World Class Programme training schedule to pass on their sailing knowledge and passion for the sport.

Shore-based activities

The Volvo Sailing Academies are open to complete beginners who are welcome to take part in a variety of taster sessions from dinghy sailing to windsurfing and stand up paddle boarding. For those who don't fancy getting their feet wet, there will be number of family friendly shore-based activities, including a boat building competition made out of recycled materials, a colouring competition, a lunchtime BBQ and information available to find out about getting involved in sailing by becoming a member of the Club.
