OLYMPIC WATERS OPEN DAY

Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy are holding an open day on Saturday 30th March and everyone is welcome. The event will run from 10am until 4pmand offers members of the public an opportunity to experience first-hand the sports and facilities the academy and on-site partners have to offer.

The academy wants to showcase the wide range of facilities available to enjoy, whether participating or volunteering. The event has been inspired by the success of last year’s Olympics and entrance is free. Activities on offer for a discounted fee include dinghy sailing at SailLaser, windsurfing and stand-up paddleboarding at the Official Test Centre and rock climbing, mountain biking, coasteering and kayaking with Weymouth College's Outdoor Adventure Centre.

Academy chief executive John Tweed said, “The WPNSA Open Day is a chance for visitors to get involved and have a go at the sports WPNSA has to offer... The Games were not a one off, but a springboard to ensure there is a continuing and lasting legacy in Dorset and the United Kingdom... We hope to inspire young and old in the ‘afterglow' of very successful Olympic and Paralympic sailing events, in all aspects of marine sports not just sailing... Involvement can range from partaking regularly to volunteering at events.”
