Discover sailing free at club
PEOPLE can try their hand at sailing when Sun City Yacht Club holds two free ‘Discover Sailing’ days at Two Rocks Marina, on September 3 and 16.
“One of our members will skipper each of the dinghies and anyone aged eight and above can try sailing, or from six years old if accompanied by a parent,” past commodore John Utley said.
“There will also be canoes available for paddling within the marina. All safety equipment is provided but it’s recommended that visitors bring footwear that can go in the water along with a hat.”
Mr Utley finished his three-year term as commodore recently, with Wayne Hartas voted in to take the helm.
The summer sailing season starts October 7, including the first session of an Australian Sailing-ratified course for people wanting to learn to sail a dinghy.
“There will be opportunities to sail on larger yachts, outside the marina,” Mr Utley said. “The club hosts social events through the year and social, family, senior and junior memberships are offered.”
