Day sails

If you’ve never sailed before or would like to introduce friends or family members to the joys of sailing, introductory day sails are the perfect opportunity to try out those sea legs and ensure a fun day out!

All day sails (full day, half day and evening) are skippered by an experienced RYA certified skipper who will look after you, make sure you’re comfortable, keep you refreshed with food and drink, and teach you as much as you want to know. You’ll become a valuable part of the crew and learn to sail Rival 41C sail training yacht East End Endeavour in the beautiful inshore waters of the Firth of Clyde. During the autumn, our evening sails offer a great chance to practice your night sailing. Find out more about the area in our Location pages.

You can join in one of our advertised day tasters, or check our sailing calendar for available dates and get a group of like-minded friends or family together on a chartered day sail (4-8 persons). Book a place on one of our advertised day sails now to make sure you don’t miss out!

We also offer gift vouchers for Day Sails – the perfect gift for a special occasion. Please contact us if you’d like more details.

Day sail fees are inclusive of lunch aboard (full day only), tea/coffee and snacks throughout, plus any short-stay berthing fees, gas and fuel. Off-peak prices (October to April inclusive) are listed in brackets to the right of peak season prices.
