Keel Boat Sail Training
On Friday evenings from May to September there is an open invitation to members and non-members alike to attend what is generally known as ‘Social Sailing’. As well as introducing potential members to the pleasures of sailing, we also help new boat owning and non-boat owning Members to broaden their experience with a view to gaining their Piper Helmsman’s Certificate. It is also an excellent way to get to know others in the Club, therefore even if you are a non-sailing member come along, sit in the sun on the balcony, have a drink or a meal and watch the activity on the water. Registration night is Friday May 3 at 7.00pm and this will involve a short introduction to the club. The first sailing night is Friday May 10 and every Friday thereafter until end August 2019.
Corporate Sailing Days
Most Companies enjoy a good day out with their Customers, Clients or Employees and we have all been to Carting, Ten Pin Bowling and Golf days, Rugby Matches and Team Building Days.So now it’s time for something a little different. At Royal Gourock Yacht Club we would like you to join us at an Invitational Corporate Sailing Day. Where with our experienced members, and catering staff your guests will have an unforgettable experience.
