The sailing committee met last night and it was felt to be a good idea to run a try a boat day.
The reasons behind it were many but included , Tuesday, Wed and Thursday night sailing has ended as a result of this there are sailors who do not know what to do next, how to try a different boat , or what different boats handle like.
K20 will have finished and there may be young sailors looking to sail for the winter season.
Some people may enjoy crewing who currently do not have a crewing job and some club members may just like to try a different boat to usual. It may even be an opportunity to boost your fleet.
This would only work if members were prepared to turn up, rig their boat and let others have a go in it, in return for having a go in different boats if you wish. It is necessary for the weather to be decent to permit this and the wind to be reasonable there is no intention to run this in boat breaking weather.
The sailing season of open meetings is coming to an end and with the availability of the sailing committee generally it was felt that Sunday 27th October would be a good day to try this with times to be confirmed but I would suggest 10.30 to 1pm..
We currently have offers to use all of the club boats which include picos, fevas, laser 2000 and others , a phantom, a gp14, a solo, a laser, any other offers would be very welcome.
We may ask BEN if the sup team would be prepared to lend a board or 2 as well.
