Are you looking for a new way to get outdoors and active or find something you can enjoy together with the family? If the answer is yes, Swanage Sailing Club is inviting you and your family to come and try sailing for free on Saturday 26th May 2pm.
Whether you’re completely new to the sport or looking to get back on the water, RYA Push the Boat Out which takes place throughout May is the perfect time to give it a go.
The nationwide event will see thousands of people taking part in the sailing or windsurfing activity, with open days and taster sessions taking place at sailing clubs and centres across the country.
Starting at 2pm, on 26th May there will be a whole host of activities taking place including joyrides and basic instruction, with tea and cakes in the lovely Club House.
Sailing can be as physical or as relaxing as you want to make it, you can sail with others or on your own, do it competitively or potter about and just enjoy the gentle escape of being outside in the elements.

Duties needing volunteers
26/08/2018, 1145, Bar
If you look on the right, you’ll see a new panel showing upcoming house duties that don’t have members assigned. There’s also a new page giving an easy view of unassigned house duties. I’ll update this one a week.
Please all members volunteer for house duties, you need to do two per year. Upcoming duties in red are priority and need volunteers first. It’s easier if you self select duties but if that fails, I’ll assign them to members randomly.
Don’t know how to volunteer for a duty?
Don’t forget to confirm both house and safety duties too, click to see how.
