Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy are opening up local sport to everyone this weekend.

It's not only water sports you can try - but a range of adventure sports that are available right on your doorstep.

'Sail Fest' will run for the first time this year from the 23rd to 26th of August, visitors to the Academy can try a new sport, join in coaching sessions, compete alongside 100 plus dinghies in the WPNSA Regatta and enjoy the Saturday evening hog roast with guest speaker, new Chief Executive of the WPNSA, Peter Allam.

Peter, an Olympic medallist himself, is keen to entice a larger audience to understand the benefits of using the Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy and the multi-sport offering that this globally recognised venue has to offer sports enthusiasts of all ages.

"The aim is for everyone in the family to participate and for a nominal fee experience a new sport at the WPNSA.  The taster courses, on offer in conjunction with our onsite partners this coming weekend, are an ideal opportunity to try a new hobby at low cost in a safe and fun environment".
