Dis­cover sail­ing free at club

North Coast Weekender - - News -

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.”
