Sail of the cen­tury

Canning Times - - NEWS -

Keen to set sail for ad­ven­ture? Then the Shel­ley Sail­ing Club is the place for you.

SHEL­LEY Sail­ing Club is ready to set a course for ad­ven­ture as the new sail­ing sea­son draws closer.

The club is on the look­out for new mem­bers ahead of the sea­son, which is due to be­gin in Oc­to­ber.

Vice-com­modore Todd Old­field said the re­laxed, friendly at­mos­phere was per­fect for ex­pe­ri­enced sailors and new­com­ers.

“You will find peo­ple who sail by them­selves and we even have hus­band and wife, fa­ther and daugh­ter, and fa­ther and son teams sail­ing to­gether,” he said.

“The sailors at Shel­ley have lots of fun in a re­laxed at­mos­phere of fun, friend­ship and even a lit­tle ri­valry at times.”

Mr Old­field said the club had two dif­fer­ent cour­ses, one for be­gin­ners and a fol­low-on course, with kids able to learn even if their fam­ily did not have a boat.

“Shel­ley Sail­ing Club sup­plies the boat and boat stor­age, you just pay for the train­ing,” he said. “No ex­pe­ri­ence is re­quired for the in­tro­duc­tory course, all you need is your bathers, hat and en­thu­si­asm.”

The club is hold­ing an open day on Oc­to­ber 14 for peo­ple in­ter­ested in join­ing, which will in­clude train­ing on the day.

The ex­pe­ri­ence is nec­es­sary to be­gin train­ing with Shel­ley Sail­ing Club.
