Discover Sailing Day Saturday 6th April 9am – 3pm

Pacers are ready

 

Cairns Yacht Club celebrates being part of the Cairns community for the past 111 years and opens its doors for the community to come and try sailing Saturday 6th April 2019.

 

Cairns Yacht Club is inviting the community to enjoy a free sailing experience as part of National Discover Sailing Days.  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 Discover Sailing Day  is to encourage people to find out how much fun, safe, accessible and affordable sailing can be.  Cairns Yacht Club Commodore John Pool encourages people to pay the club a visit on April 6th. “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, boats and safety equipment, so all you have to do is come along prepared for a good time with 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. There are courses for young and old, aspiring sailors and experienced sailors. 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.”  “We recommend people book in advance to ensure they can get out on the water, but you can also register on the day.”

Discover Sailing Day  is part of Australian Sailing’s Discover Sailing program, which was launched in 2012 and designed to encourage more people to get in boats, out on the water and enjoying the benefits of sailing. You can register for a FREE sailing experience at Cairns Yacht Club by contacting Margie on 40312750 or cyc@cairns.net.au   For more information about sailing and different types of courses available, visit cairnsyachtclub.com and http://www.discoversailing.org.au
