For youngsters who would like to try Keelboat sailing we offer a 1 day Hawk 20 Sailing adventure day for ages 8 - 16 years. No previous experience is required on this exciting day as you set sail in to Plymouth Sound. Along the way we'll cover foundation sailing skills as you work as a crew onboard the Hawk 20 assisting the onboard instructor, as we explore the Sound seeing both Drake's Island and the Plymouth Breakwater from the water.  If conditions are suitable we will sail to Cawsands, Mount Edgecumbe or Jennycliff bay for a beach picnic, before sailing back to Mount Batten - and if you are really lucky you may have the chance to sail with Dolphins!
