St Denys Sailing and Rowing ClubThere's another chance to try sailing, rowing, canoeing or even stand up paddleboarding on the River Itchen with St Denys Sailing and Rowing Club on Sunday (May 14).

The event, which runs from noon-4pm and is free, is being run as part of the RYA's 'Push the boat out' on water experience days.  The club says no previous experience is needed, lifejackets will be supplied, and if you've never been sailing before you'll be paired  up with an experienced skipper who will show you the ropes.
