Montrose Sailing Club invites you and your family to enjoy a free experience of sailing on the May 16 as the club hosts anyone-welcome taster sessions as part of national RYA Push the Boat Out.
RYA Push the Boat Out (09-17 May) is a nine day nationwide event that will see hundreds of sailing clubs and centres across the country opening their gates for local people to come and ‘have a go’ at sailing and windsurfing.
Whether you’re completely new to the sport, looking to get back on the water or sail regularly, Montrose SC will be one of the many sailing clubs and centres across the country taking part in RYA Push the Boat Out. The event will see hundreds of people taking part in the sport at open days and have-a-go sessions.
Starting at midday, there will be a whole host of activities taking place at Montrose SC. With have-a-go taster sessions, on-land demonstrations, and hot and cold refreshments available, it’s your opportunity to give sailing a try, see the wildlife of the Basin close up (an osprey last time we were out!) and speak to sailing club members about what the sport and Montrose Sailing Club are all about
Commodore Kathy Locke said: “We are delighted to be taking part in the RYA Push the Boat Out, we are inviting the local communities of north Angus and south Aberdeenshire to come down to our family friendly club, have a go at sailing, see what the club has to offer and get involved - who knows if you visit you might just get hooked!”
RYA Sport Development Manager Duncan Truswell said “Push the Boat Out provides the perfect opportunity for people to discover their local sailing venue, meet key volunteers and like-minded people, have a go at the sport and find out how much fun it is and how easy it is to get involved.”
