We really did #PushTheBoatOut We really did #PushTheBoatOut
We took over 60 people for their first taste of sailing on Sunday. It was great to see so many youngsters - and their parents - enjoy their first sail in warm sunshine and gentle breezes. We're welcoming lots of new members to the Midlands' oldest (and friendliest) Sailing Club, and looking forwards to getting to know them on our next Start Sailing course, which begins on the evening of 29th May. After 3 weekends' expert and patient tuition, our new members will have mastered the basic skills of sailing. If you mssed it, and would like to go for a sail with one of our experienced helms, please email membership@midlandsailingclub.org.uk
