Come and try it

Dou­glas Sail­ing Club

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - JOIN A 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.
