On a beautiful sunny May day, Herne Bay Sailing Club opened its doors to offer taster sails and powerboat rides to members of the public as part of the RYA's nationwide Push the Boat Out event.
A fantastic 88 children and adults from tiny to tall experienced sailing watched by their families and friends from the sun deck. The BBQ, galley and bar were popular and members were on hand to answer questions about training opportunities, Cadets, social, kayak and sailing membership.
Visitors' feedback sums up the day:
We hope to welcome some of the visitors back soon. We are offering special prices on membership and learn to sail packages for anyone who joins the club in May. The Push the Boat Out membership form is here. Email us to find out more or call in on a Friday night, Saturday morning or Sunday afternoon.
Many thanks to the large number of Herne Bay SC members and friends who gave their time to make sure everyone enjoyed their day.
