AUGUST 2021 AND Social Sailing ReSTARTS
SOCIAL SAILS ARE NOW AT 17:30 ON TUESDAYS AND THURSDAYS. THE EARLIER START ALLOWS FOR THE EARLIER SUNSET
Subsequently times and frequencies may be adjusted to suit members’ preferences. Changes will be notified by email and on this website.
We meet at the first marina gate on the boardwalk fifteen minutes before sailing time. Boat rentals are limited at social sailing times so that there are two boats available for social sails.
Skipper volunteer’s decisions with respect to social sails are final including go/no-go and sail foreshortening decisions. All members must wear a PFD during social sails. Bring sun protection, water, a hat and a rain jacket with you.
Social sails are open to all members and their invited guests. Each member, guest and the skipper volunteer of club boats will pay $10 for a social sail, which is usually about two hours long. Payment is in cash prior to casting off and there are no refunds. If there are insufficient places for all members and guests, members will be given priority.
In consideration of other members and to avert fire risk on board, smoking or other sorts of flame are not permitted on club boats. Similarly, in consideration of other members, children under 13 and pets cannot be taken on a social sail. Youth under 18 should be accompanied by an adult. Families are welcome to take pets and younger children on board when they have rented a boat.
