FAMILIES are being invited to push the boat out and have a go at free sailing taster sessions.

Upton Warren Outdoor Education Centre, near Droitwich Spa, will be offering the event on Saturday, May 18 and Sunday, May 19.

Alistair Hodgson, operations manager at Upton Warren, said: "Get a first taste of sailing with one of the club's experienced members, enjoy getting to grips with one of the centre's own boats or sample the social side of what life at Upton Warren can offer.

Visitors are advised to bring a change of clothes, soft-soled shoes, waterproofs and the club will supply everything else you need. The event will take place between 10am and 4pm on a first come first serve basis, and is suitable for anyone six years and over.
