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 26th April at 7.00pm and this will involve a short introduction to the club. The first sailing night is 3rd May at 7.00pm and every Friday thereafter until 13th September 2019.
