Try Sailing

13th and 20th May, 2017

In 2017 MTSC and Parkwood Outdoors Dolygaer held an open day as part of the Royal Yachting Association's "Push the Boat Out" campaign.

Where you were able try sailing and to discuss other outdoor activities and further formal training. This was very successful with everyone enjoying themselves and new members have joined the club.

If you missed this opportunity to try sailing and your family have general interest in outdoor activities, have sailed in the past and would like to try again or just fancy trying a new friendly sport, then just get in touch by email.


Email us, as you can sail by prior arrangement at any time during the sailing season. As a beginner it is sensible to restrict this to the spring and summer (Easter to September). It's warmer!

What to bring

If you intend to sail please bring a change of clothes as you can get splashed even on the nicest of days. Some old trainers that you don't mind getting wet as the area is stony and you will have to step in the water to get into the boat.

Merthyr Tydfil Sailing Club can provide buoyancy aids and wind-proof overalls if the weather's not wonderful; but remember we need some wind to make the boat go!
