Open Day - Saturday 27 April

Published 13:00 on 5 Apr 2024

On Saturday 27 April, Seafarers Sailing Club will be holding an Open Day. The public will be invited to see what a family friendly club we are and to experience some of the fun and fulfilling activities we provide. There will be tours around the Club, a chance to chat with members, and an opportunity to find out about our RYA courses, including those scheduled for the end of May. Subject to suitable weather and sea conditions, our visitors will also be able to try sailing and rowing.

Introduction to sailing and rowing sessions will run from 11:00. Buoyancy aids will be provided. Those going on the water would be wise to bring suitable beach shoes, a waterproof top, and perhaps jeans or trousers that can roll up.The Club will provide two large dinghies, each helmed by an experienced sailor. We will also have the Club's rowing Gig operating. Sailing and rowing trips will run on an ad hoc basis to meet the demand. Each on-water session is expected to last no more than 30 minutes.

The Club will also be providing two Practice Sailing sessions for its members on the same day. Seeing boats being rigged, launched, and sailed will help our visitors appreciate the Club's main function. Practice Sailing will run from 11:00 to 12:30 and from 14:00 to 15:30.

Tea and coffee will be available throughout the day. From approximately 10:30 to 13:00, Stubbington Fish & Chips Vintage Trailer will be parked nearby with a selection of drinks and snacks. Check out the menu, here.

The help of members will be key to making a success of the day. In addition to welcoming and guiding our guests, members will be required to helm the dinghies, cox the Gig, crew the patrol boat, drive the tractor, etc. If you can help, please volunteer via the Duty Roster.

Members of the public and members of the Club who have any questions should contact Tim Mason, our Membership Secretary.
