Sail­ing surely the eas­i­est of sells

Joondalup Weekender - - News - John Bird

EVER stood on the beach and gazed out across the blue wa­ters wish­ing you could be out there fish­ing, div­ing or sail­ing?

Well your dream can start with a taste of sail­ing on Sun­day, Novem­ber 1, at Hillarys Yacht Club be­tween 9am and 1pm.

On this free Dis­cover Sail­ing Day, club mem­bers will take in­di­vid­u­als out for a sail with ju­niors go­ing in dinghies such as the Op­ti­mist and adults or fam­i­lies go­ing on the rac­ing or cruis­ing keel­boats.

The club pro­vides ac­tiv­i­ties through the an­gling, div­ing, power and sail­ing sec­tions.

Op­er­at­ing out of a new ju­nior club­house, young mem­bers can learn to sail and ac­cess hol­i­day cour­ses and coach­ing on dinghies suited to their skill level un­der the guid­ance of ex­pe­ri­enced teenagers and adults.

The big­ger yachts either race in one of three di­vi­sions or go cruis­ing to­gether and some do both.

Start sail­ing, VHF ra­dio, first aid and recre­ational skip­per’s ticket cour­ses are of­fered reg­u­larly.

The club of­fers a range of eat­ing and bar fa­cil­i­ties with so­cial ac­tiv­i­ties.

Come to Hillarys Yacht Club and see th­ese fa­cil­i­ties and try sail­ing. Call 9246 2833 or visit www.hillarysy­acht­club.com.au.
