Learn to sail on magical Morecambe Bay with views of the stunning Lake District. The best way to learn to sail is on a small boat. Dinghies are great fun for the young and agile who don't mind falling into the water. But for the many adults who take up sailing later in life, something a bit more user-friendly and stable is preferred. Bay Sea School in Morecambe is the only RYA recognised training centre providing sailing tuition on the sea on a small yacht. Their 22ft keelboat is ideal for adult beginners dreaming of sailing off into the sunset! Read more at
