Islington Boat Club has launched free weekly sessions for over-50s.
From 11am to 1pm every Tuesday, the “Upperdeckers” club will offer a programme of sailing, kayaking, narrowboating, bellboating and powerboating.
Development officer Amanda Corcoran said: “It is not just for Islington residents – it’s for anyone regardless of where they live, as long as they are over 50.”
A full change of clothes including soft-soled shoes and a towel is all that is required. Instructors will provide everything else, including buoyancy aids.
Sessions start at the club home by Regent’s Canal, 16 to 34 Graham Street, Islington, N1 8JX.
