Chipping Norton Lake Sailing Club hosts Discover Sailing Day

Have you ever wanted to try sailing but never got a chance? Well, here it is.

Chipping Norton Lake Sailing Club are offering a free sailing experience as part of National Discover Sailing Day 2018 on Sunday, October 28.

People can get a taste of what sailing is all about and discover how much fun, safe, accessible and affordable it can be.

Club commodore Max Hubbard encouraged residents to visit the club at the lakes boatshed (within the park at the end of Ascot Drive, Chipping Norton) on any Saturday afternoon to talk about learning to sail and even watch a sailing race after 2pm.   

“This is a fantastic opportunity for us to welcome the community to our club and our sport,” he said.

“We encourage anyone who has ever wanted to try sailing to come and have a look and enjoy a sail with an experienced club member or instructor.

“We provide the instructors, boats and safety equipment, so all you have to do is come along prepared for a good time with a spare set of clothes, a hat and some sunscreen.”

The Discover Sailing Day experience will see participants go on a short sail with an experienced sailor, enjoy the club’s facilities, and find out about the sailing courses available.

“Our Discover Sailing host can answer any questions about sailing and our volunteers will ensure you have an enjoyable day at the club,” Mr Hubbard said.

“We recommend people book in advance to ensure they can get out on the water, but you can also register on the day.  People who book will have priority on the day”.
