A club spokeswoman said: “Many don't realise how accessible sailing is, how comparatively low cost it can be and how inclusive and family friendly it is.

“It's great for the mind, body and soul — a way to clear your mind taking in the scenery and enjoying the relative peace and fresh air.

“Racing, on the other hand, can be competitive and invigorating.

“As a sport, hobby or pastime, sailing can mean different things to all.
