Dozens of young boating enthusiasts from sailing clubs around the Portsmouth area are expected to come and take part in next month’s RYA OnBoard Festival 2019 at the Andrew Simpson Watersports Centre (ASWC) in Portsmouth.
The event takes place on Sunday 21 July between 09.45 am and 4pm.
ASWC’s OnBoard festival is a day which celebrates kids who are part of the OnBoard Programme in the local area. The aim of this year’s OnBoard festival is to invite participants from neighbouring clubs and centres who have sailed in the clubs’ OnBoard programmes to come along to the Festival and take part a fun packed day on the water in a social environment with other like-minded people.
The Festival will give children a great opportunity to sail at a different place to their usual home club, and to take part in some fun games and challenges. The day, which is for children aged 8-14 years old, is a fun filled, on water activity day, with a mixture of sailing, windsurfing and paddleboarding! OnBoard enables those taking part to experience all the excitement and relaxation that being on the water offers, whilst at the same time teaching them a wide range of invaluable life skills, from problem solving to leadership and teamwork.
The Festival is set to be an amazing day and your children will come away from the event having had a brilliant time on the water.
