In 2014 we will offer regular sailing on Saturdays, Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays.  We will also offer some Thursdays for "exceptional groups" - these are for groups who do no have regular sailing slots.

Exceptional Sailing Days for Exceptional Sailors

CVSS has always offered a limited number of these each season and we want you to know more about them. All CVSS sailors have some disability.  However we know there are groups of children and adults whose disabilities are such that a regular one-hour sailing slot would be inappropriate but who would enjoy a "water experience" that was more flexible. In the past we have offered a 10:30 a.m. - 14:30 p.m. "day" to such groups and have organised katakanu trips. The cost is £5 per sailor.  We restrict this experience to sailors who cannot participate in our usual CVSS offering.  These visits are best mid-June to mid-September when we hope for warmer weather.

If you know of a group who would like to consider coming for a "one-off" day visit, please contact Frances
