The day was kicked off by a visit from Sam Rowe, our local RYA Development Officer, followed shortly thereafter by our MP Sir Roger Gale who welcomed ashore two new members who were in the process of taking their RYA Level 1 course.
HBSC signed up 25 temporary members who were each given the opportunity to sail alongside some of our more experienced members. The gusty condition dissuaded a few. They were also given the opportunity to spent some time in one of the safety boats and all jumped at the chance.
It was felt that a very successful day was had by all despite the tricky wind conditions.
Thanks of course goes to the army of volunteers.
