Welcome to Morecambe Sailing Club. (Same Club-New Name!)
NEW OPPORTUNITY – KILLINGTON SAILING. We are going sailing at Killington Reservoir on Tuesday evenings. Next Tuesday 26th July meet there from 6.30pm. This is an inland lake which many of you are familiar with from a Saturday fun day we had up there. This is a good chance for you to do some helming for a couple of hours with possibly a small amount of instruction on offer and sailing in a confined area so everyone looks after each other. It is unlikely the safety boat will be on the water. If personal kit is required from our store then this can be picked up before or after Sunday sailing or Monday night 7-8pm.
Also see Facebook and liaise with John Gibbison email….johngibbison@hotmail.
This is also going out as an email to all members.
This is a trial session – If it is a success we may arrange some more evenings over the next 6 weeks whilst we still have the light nights and could vary the night to suit different people.
The Morecambe Sailing Club Youth Club is now launched and led by Nick Whiteley. The club will be meeting every Monday evening 7.00 – 9.00 and have Saturday sailing at least once a month and much more.
