The Free Press (Corowa) - - CLASSIES (03) CLASSIES -

NEWC is invit­ing the com­mu­nity to en­joy a free sail­ing ex­pe­ri­ence as part of Na­tional Dis­cover Sail­ing Day 2018 on Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 28, com­menc­ing 12-noon with a free sausage siz­zle at our NEW HQ at Springhurst Re­cre­ation Re­serve.

Peo­ple can at­tend by them­selves or with a part­ner, friends or fam­ily to get a taste of what sail­ing is all about.

The aim of Na­tional Dis­cover Sail­ing Day is to en­cour­age peo­ple to find out how much fun, safe, ac­ces­si­ble and af­ford­able sail­ing can be.

NEWC Com­modore, Dave Salau en­cour­aged peo­ple to pay the club a visit on Oc­to­ber 28.

“This is a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity for us to wel­come the com­mu­nity to our club and our sport,” he said.

“We en­cour­age any­one who has ever wanted to try sail­ing to come and have a look and en­joy a sail with an ex­pe­ri­enced club mem­ber or in­struc­tor.

“We pro­vide all the in­struc­tors, BloKarts (pro­nounced blow karts) and safety equip­ment, so all you have to do is come along pre­pared for a good time with en­closed shoes, a hat and some sun­screen.”

Dis­cover Sail­ing Day of­fers you the chance to go for a short sail with an ex­pe­ri­enced sailor, en­joy the club’s fa­cil­i­ties and find out about the great sail­ing cour­ses avail­able.

BloKart sail­ing is fun for all ages and all abil­i­ties. The whole fam­ily can get in­volved – kids as young as five can en­joy a sail with a par­ent or guardian.

“Our Dis­cover Sail­ing Host can an­swer any ques­tions about sail­ing and our vol­un­teers will en­sure you have an en­joy­able day at the club,” Mr Salau said.

“We rec­om­mend peo­ple book in ad­vance to en­sure they can get out on the wa­ter, but you can also reg­is­ter on the day.”

Na­tional Dis­cover Sail­ing Day is part of Yacht­ing Aus­tralia’s Dis­cover Sail­ing pro­gram, which was launched in 2012 and de­signed to en­cour­age more peo­ple to get out and en­joy the ben­e­fits of sail­ing.

You can reg­is­ter for a free sail­ing ex­pe­ri­ence at NEWC by con­tact­ing co-or­di­na­tor Mike Reid at 0406 269 729, Sec­re­tary Scilla Tay­lor on (03) 5721 3679 or Dave Salau on 0408 387 582.
