With Push the Boat Out just around the corner, Lee on Solent
Sailing Club are gearing up for their big event on Sunday 13th
The club are hoping for another successful day of giving
families a chance to find out how much they love sailing, and how easy and
inexpensive it is to get hooked.
Take the Czura family, for example. Peter and Lucy Czura came along to the club
with their three boys who just took to sailing like ducks to water, showing
natural skills and aptitude. One of them who had not sailed before even
won Cadet of the Year.
Their parents also become very much engaged in the club too.
Both did their RYA level 2 after which the whole family joined in some of
the club cruises across to the IOW. Lucy became an active parent
volunteer in the kids’ Gybe club, leading a keep fit /athletics session during
the winter sessions.
Peter completed his Powerboat Level 2 and is
going to be helping out on the water during the season providing safety boat
Lucy commented “Our involvement is a reflection of the club
itself being so friendly and inclusive.
We had originally intended just to give the boys a chance to 'have a go'
Lee on Solent Sailing Club are hoping more visitors will
become inspired on 13th May.
All are welcome to their family friendly sailing club for
Try a Sail sessions. They will start at 10:00am and continue throughout the
day. Buoyancy aids will be supplied for the participants. All the facilities of
the club will be available including snacks and the bar.
