IBM London West Sailing Subsection Offer... 

Week Long Watersport Activities/Courses For Your Children

The IBM Sailing Section is able to offer a variety of activities/courses for children of different ages via the Queen Mary Sailing Club (QMSC) facilities which are in Ashford, near the IBM Bedfont location. All activities/courses are run by QMSC. 

As a special offer the IBM Sailing Section is able to offer you a 30% discount on the list price for children (junior) activities/courses. This offer is limited due to the funding the club receives and is made on a first come first served basis. A 20% discount on the QMSC list price will be offered if the funding limit is reached. 

Details of the activities/courses, list prices per person and availability of places can be found via the following links. 

If you are interested in making a booking or would like more information please contact Marek Dytko (
