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 email@example.com For more information about sailing and different types of courses available, visit cairnsyachtclub.com and http://www.discoversailing.org.au

A message from the team at SOUTH PASSAGE:-
I have attached a flyer for the subsidised general public voyage in the upcoming holidays. The regular price was over $1000 and we have reduced it to only $500 to make it more affordable for students looking for something interesting and a bit different to do over the holidays. This price covers all meals, accommodation, safety equipment and training and is inclusive of GST.
The voyage departs from Half Moon Bay Marina, 25-29 Buckley St, Yorkeys Knob at 8am on Saturday 7th and returns on Friday 13th July by 4pm after sailing for 7 days around the outer reef. This is a fabulous opportunity where team building, resilience, communication and leadership skills can be nurtured and developed as they learn to sail a 100ft gaff-rigged schooner the traditional way.
We would love to hear from interested young people from your marina community. They need to call us during office hours on (07) 3893 3777.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me if there is any other information that you need.
