I love your optimistic attitude :-)
If you don't ask, then the reply will always be no!
Go for it and chase those dreams xxx

If you're looking to learn how to sail, look at the sailing courses at Frensham Pond Sailing Club....once you complete a course there, that will open up more opportunities for dinghy sailing or to progress to being yacht crew :)

This is Liphook dear! More poor man’s Bordon than affluent Guildford ::) You will be lucky to find anyone with a boat. If you do that life jacket may come in very useful :)

Thanks for all the replying so far! Some made me chuckle!
As for Frensham im on the list! Hopefully somthing will open up most likely in 2022. Ive heard dinghy sailing would be a really good way yo get a feel for the way things interact with the wind quickley.

You could volunteer with the Sea Cadets

Some of the country’s best sailors come from Frensham due to its technically demanding wind shifts etc.

Stick with it, find a good helm who can teach you, it takes years to gain the knowledge to sail then once you have take that knowledge and race with it!!

Good luck

Thanks everyone for the kind words! I’ve joined a club in hayling so hopefully will have some more luck! Although still interested if anything comes up here too! Also just finished my online RYA theory so making some progress!
