An oasis in the middle of Solihull, Olton Mere provides a tranquil location for messing about in boats. What could be better than pottering about in a sailing dinghy on a summer afternoon ?

Supported by the resident Olton Mere Sailing Club, for a small session fee (£10 per person 2019), qualified RYA instructors will help you experience dinghy sailing in either conventional 2/3 man dinghies or in specially designed “Access” dinghies for those who are less mobile or confident. The latter are designed especially for disabled or less able bodied and are designed never to capsize. Intended as an introduction to dinghy sailing the group will meet once per month on a Friday afternoon throughout the summer. You do not need to be able to swim although you may get wet occasionally ! No special clothing is required and buoyancy aids are provided.
