Hello and welcome to the home of the biggest cat fleet in the country,


This year the UK International Dart Association (UKIDA) are arranging taster sails on Dart 18s at venues around the country.  If you are unsure if a dart is for you or even what it is check out the useful video above or follow the link HERE.

The first event scheduled is to take place at Dee Sailing Club on the 5th May from 1pm at the RYA organised “Push The Boat Out” event. The bar will be open and the BBQ lit so come down and have a great family afternoon out. For more information please see our facebook event.

The second scheduled event will take place at Datchet Water Sailing Club on the weekend of 19 & 20 May at the RYA organised “Push The Boat Out” event. For more information please see our facebook event

For details of other locations, please enquire by email as below or see our facebook page Try a Dart.

At DWSC on 19 & 20 May 2018 A team from UKIDA will be on hand with a Dart 18 rigged and ready to go sailing, all you have to do is turn up and get your kit on! You will need a wetsuit (or drysuit) a harness and a buoyancy aid, but don’t worry if you do not have any kit, this will be available for hire from the club. You will also need something for your feet (if you don’t have dinghy boots, a pair of old trainers may suffice).

To avoid disappointment, and to assist with out planning; please register your interest and book your time slot here by getting in touch and emailing us at

As this event is part of the DWSC Push The Boat Out event, there will also be lots of other activities taking place over the weekend and the opportunity to test out other boats.

Come along, bring the family and find out what makes Dart 18 still the UK’s largest racing fleet of catamarans.

We look forward to meeting you

Dart 18… join the fun
