Getting active outdoors has been proven to positively impact physical and mental health. Enjoy the freedom of being afloat, the challenge and achievement of learning a new skill and the many new friends you will meet. Meanwhile, youngsters can develop heaps of positive life skills, like confidence, independence and teamwork, which they will take into all other areas of their lives.

Robbie Bell, RYA East Regional Development Officer, said: "Push the Boat Out provides a fantastic opportunity for Sailing Clubs to encourage the local community to come and give sailing a go – anyone wanting to get involved can search for their nearest event on the RYA website www.rya.org.uk/ptbo. Go along and get on the water - it really couldn’t be simpler. With a range of activities on offer across the UK throughout the whole of May, there are opportunities to try windsurfing, dinghies, keelboats and larger yachts – don’t miss out!"

RYA Programmes Manager, Michelle Gent commented: “We are delighted that for the second year running, Push the Boat Out will be returning for the whole of May. Whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned sailor looking for a way back in to the sport, there will be something for everyone - find out what’s going on in your local area and get involved."

The national participation campaign run by the RYA aims to make the water more accessible, whatever your age, background or ability - getting more people sailing, windsurfing, having fun and getting active outdoors.

All kit and safety equipment is provided, so just bring a pair of old trainers you don’t mind getting wet and your sense of fun. Refreshments will be also be available at many venues, with a host of shore-side activities and entertainment to enjoy too.

Last year, more than 39,000 people across the UK attended a PTBO open day, inspiring thousands of new sailors to join their local club.
