LEARN TO SAIL PRO­GRAM: An­other per­fect morn­ing on Sun­day saw the Whit­sun­day Sail­ing Club’s Learn to Sail pro­gram back in ac­tion again.

Af­ter a brief ses­sion on shore, it was all hands afloat as the par­tic­i­pants started the day on the wa­ter with a Le Mans style start.

Once on the wa­ter, the topic of the day was again steer­ing and sail con­trol, this time with some up­wind and down­wind sail­ing in­volve­ment.

With the breeze grad­u­ally in­creas­ing as the morn­ing pro­gressed, the sailors got to ex­pe­ri­ence a few gusts and learned about read­ing the wind on the wa­ter.

Stu­dents get a week off, as the Air­lie Beach Fes­ti­val of Mu­sic takes over the area, re­turn­ing as usual on Sun­day, No­vem­ber 18, from 8.30-11.30am at Whit­sun­day Sail­ing Club.

For de­tails con­tact the club on 4946 6138.
