We get lots of emails asking about windsurfing lessons at the club. There are full details if you dig around the website, but this is a slightly less formal overview.
Lessons are nominally 10.30am Saturdays and 11am Sundays. During winter, we don't run Sunday lessons. Sometimes you can get enthusiastic members or day leaders to give you a lesson at other times, but don't count on it! The weekend mornings really are the best time to learn, due to the wind.
The lessons are about an hour on land, and then open-ended on the water, subject to tide and wind.
Yes, it's possible to turn up and pass the written test and self-rescue with a cursory introduction, but we discourage this, since much of the lesson is about club rules and safety (yours and ours). If at all possible, please come to the weekend lessons.
