If you are aged 8-18, you can go sailing all week in August for £10. It's a scheme for beginners run at Surrey Docks Watersports Centre, between 1-19 Aug. 020-7237-5555 to find out more. Disabled young people are included, they have lots of adapted boats and all the gear. Great for those of you with energetic kids on their hols already moaning about having nothing to do.
Alternatively, if you are aged 10-23 you can sign up for a whole year of sailing and kayaking, with tuition, at Westminster Boating Base, for a donation of what you can afford (last year's charge was £10). Its not a bad bargain for adults too.
