Come and try it
Douglas Sailing Club
DOUGLAS SAILING CLUB on Solander Boulevardhas set its sailing calendar for 2014. Race days will be held on Sundays, May 4th, July 6, August 3 and in September.
"Come and Try Sailing" days have yet to be set following the stinger season and will be advertised well in advance. We aim to have these on a monthly basis. Memberships are now available with the added benefits of families able to access Club boats for a fun day at the beach. Our fleet includes Lasers and Nacras 4.5.
Healthy snacks, BBQ and drinks for all will be available on our Sail/Social day.
A new Government Grant for significant interior and exterior upgrades, which was announced by our Member for Cook, David Kempton, will greatly enhance the sailing experience for all. His contribution to this is very much appreciated.
The president, Luke McMullen said ‘‘Besides Mr Kempton’s support we would also like to thank the new Mayor of Douglas Shire, Julia Leu, and Kym Rowley of the Combined Club for their referrals which added substance to our grant application’’.
It has injected an enthusiasm into the club allowing current members to go forward.
