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

Summer Sunday Sailing
Non-competitive social sailing without the stresses of racing, plus, on this Sunday, a relaxed opportunity to work on your racing skills with Laz andronis, our RYA Racing Coach. What do you want to work on? Acceleration? Starting? finding the lay line? Mark rounding? Recognising shifts (and what to do with them)? Let us know. There is a sheet in the Clubhouse by the galley on which you can indicate your intention to attend the various Sunday afternoons. Sunday Sailing also gives the opportunity for those who have recently qualified as Powerboat drivers to practice their skills, so we will be looking for volunteers to provide safety cover.
