Ju­niors set sail on Hamo

Whitsunday Times - - ON THE WATER -

THE Whit­sun­day Sail­ing Club held its first day of learn to sail cour­ses for chil­dren on Hamil­ton Is­land last month.

WSC Pub­lic Re­la­tions Of­fi­cer Heidi Wal­ton said the ses­sions, on Opti Tack­ers, were so suc­cess­ful, that the group had split into two to al­low more sail­ing time.

“Hamil­ton Is­land En­ter­prises have as­sisted to cover the cost of run­ning the course and Cruise Whit­sun­day are also as­sist­ing ju­nior sail­ing by pro­vid­ing trans­fers each week for the Whit­sun­day Sail­ing Club’s in­struc­tors,” she said.

“The Whit­sun­day Sail­ing Club hopes this can be a per­ma­nent ad­di­tion to ac­tiv­i­ties which can be en­joyed on Hamil­ton Is­land and it looks for­ward to days when the Hamil­ton Is­land and Air­lie Beach chil­dren can sail to­gether for club races.”

For any other chil­dren on Hamil­ton Is­land who would like to learn to sail, there will be an­other pro­gram start­ing dur­ing the next school term.
