Why and How we do what we do

Sailing dinghy and funboat hire at South Cerney Outdoor, Cotswolds, Gloucestershire


If you’re new to sailing or a seasoned pro, we have a range of different sailing boats available for hire here on the 47 acre lake at South Cerney Outdoor.

Hire one of our funboats and discover a love of sailing. These extremely stable sailing boats are just the job for starting out in sailing and will give you the confidence to move onto sailing dinghies. 

If you are a new to sailing, our funboats require no previous experience. Our instructors will give you a short induction to ensure you are safe and comfortable with what you are doing and the lake is yours to explore. In higher wind conditions we may restrict funboat sailing.

If you have sailed before or are a master of the craft, then there are a range of single and double-hander dinghies available for hire such as Picos, Qba and Visions. Again, a short induction from us will reassure everyone that you are good to go. Dinghies are available for hire for 2 hour slots, including your rigging time.

There are many benefits and enjoyment that can be experienced by hiring a funboat or sailing dinghy on the waters of South Cerney Outdoor. To ensure you enjoy the experience at its best, we do, however, ask that you read through our Pay & Play Policy.
