Boating and Sailing


Anyone with an interest in boating & sailing will have spent days at sea or on rivers and lakes enjoying our glorious summer sunshine.  To recapture these experiences we invite you to join our boating & sailing group. 

Members of the Boating and Sailing Group drive down to the south coast once a month in the summer for informal sailing trips round Chichester Harbour in Bob’s Albacore sailing dinghy based at Cobnor Point.  If you are a dinghy skipper with your own dinghy and would like to join us, you will be very welcome.  Other U3A members who do not have their own boat will also be welcome as crew, but prior experience of dinghy sailing is called for. 

In addition, Ian has a sailing cruiser moored in Haslar Marina in  Portsmouth Harbour and he has in previous years also captained U3A sailors on overnight cruises across the Channel to France and the Channel Islands. 

If you are an experienced sailor, with or without a boat, and are interested in either activity please contact Bob or Ian as appropriate.
