Keelboat Sailing

Keelboat Sailing

Not many people get the opportunity to take part in sailing a keelboat as they are big and expensive craft. However, here at Conway Centres: Anglesey we have four keelboats (two Hawks and two J80’s) and groups can be split up into smaller teams that can even enjoy some racing on the Menai Strait. We relish the opportunity of giving the students the chance of sailing these crafts themselves, steering the boats, raising and lowering the sails as well as tacking and gybing, all the while being under the watchful eye of one of our sailing instructors.

Conway Centres: Anglesey has its own private dock with easy access to the Menai Strait, making it ideally situated. All four of our boats are very stable, allowing groups of all ages and abilities to participate. It is a fantastic way to explore the Menai Strait and keelboat sailing allows the group to take on the responsibilities of sailing progressively.

We also have the opportunity through 'Sailability’ to provide sailing experiences for groups off differing abilities.

Keelboat sailing is perfect for focussing on group cooperation, leadership and self esteem. It works just as well as a half day, full day, or even for an extended multi-day expedition.
