CHEDDAR Sailing (Bristol Corinthian Yacht Club) in Axbridge, will be opening its doors and inviting youngsters of all abilities to come along and learn to sail and windsurf.

The three-hour water activity sessions for children aged nine to 16 will take place on Wednesdays and Thursdays throughout August.

Sailing has everything, from a high adrenalin, high-performance competitive sport, to a cool and sociable relaxing leisure experience which can be enjoyed by the whole family.

Windsurfing keeps you fit, it’s exhilarating, easy to learn, but offers challenges along the way. You can do it on your own, with friends and family, or as part of a team.
