Day to rekin­dle your pas­sion for sail­ing

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Are you a sailor? Do you have a yacht sit­ting un­used in the garage or back­yard? When did you last go sail­ing?

If your an­swers are ‘‘yes’’, ‘‘yes’’, and ‘‘not for a long time’’, then your op­por­tu­nity has ar­rived.

In an ef­fort to get lo­cal sailors back on the wa­ter and re-kin­dle that pas­sion for sail­ing, Pare­mata Boat­ing Club is hav­ing a Bring your Boat Day this Sun­day morn­ing. All lo­cal sailors are in­vited to bring their boats down to the club and en­joy a leisurely sail out on Pau­ata­hanui In­let.

For those a bit rusty, there will be club mem­bers avail­able to help with rig­ging and launch­ing and there will be sup­port boats on the wa­ter to as­sist should any­one take an an un­ex­pected ‘swim’ or need tow­ing back to shore.

Fol­low­ing the sail­ing, the bar will be open and the bar­be­cue fired up at the clu­b­rooms.

Any­one who is in­ter­ested should meet on the beach by the boat sheds at Dolly Var­den Re­serve, on the north­ern side of the Pare­mata bridge at 8.30am.

Bar­gain sail: Mate­ship, sup­port and sweet grub – there’s no ex­cuses for not get­ting along to Pare­mata Boat­ing Club’s up­com­ing Bring your Boat Day.
