If you've ever wanted to follow in the footsteps of our Olympic Sailing heroes and have a go yourself - then you'll have the perfect chance of the August Bank Holiday Weekend.

Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy is holding over 600 sporting sessions.

Dinghy sailing - windsurfing and even rock climbing is on offer.

You need to be over 8 to take part - and each session costs £22.

Cllr Andy Blackwood, Brief Holder for Community Facilities at Weymouth & Portland Borough Council, said: "The event is an exciting addition to what is already a jam-packed summer season of sports and activities in Weymouth and Portland.

"I would really like to encourage people to come down, take in our wonderful sailing academy and views of the Olympic and Paralympic sailing venue, and get involved in some of many sports that will be on offer over the Bank Holiday weekend."

GJW Direct SailFest takes place from Friday 23rd to Monday 26th August 2013.
