EXCITING NEW SAILING CONCEPT LAUNCHED
Henley Midmar Yacht Club, situated at the Midmar Dam Resort, recently announced the launch of the “Firstsail” programme. This programme is designed to offer first time sailors the opportunity to experience the joy of sailing a sailing boat.
“Firstsail” is a concept which is proving very popular in the USA and consists of offering members of the general public, who have never been on a sailing boat, the chance to experience what sailing is all about.
This FREE offer will be available from HMYC on selected Sundays and involves those interested in experiencing the joy of sailing on a sailboat. Participants will be taken out on a club sailing boat skippered by the owner, for a two to three hour sail on the dam, so that they can experience feel of the wind and waves in the relative safety of a keelboat. Depending on the conditions prevailing, they would be encouraged to trim sails and steer the boat whilst enjoying a relaxing cruise around the dam. After this cruise, they would be most welcome to enjoy the club’s canteen and bar facilities whilst meeting members and other participants to discuss their experience.
If you are interested in participating, please send an email to , giving the names and numbers of the person or group who will be participating with the word “firstsail” in the subject line so that when we arrange the day, we can contact you and confirm your attendance.
Please inform your families, friends and neighbours. The date planned for the first event is 17th September 2017.
