Learn to Sail Day

Of Interest

December 9, 2007

The international sailing season is now officially open, with a squad of yachts having arrived in the last week or so.

Included in these are the vessels Skylark II and Hygelig, who have both generously agreed to participate in the upcoming Mieco Beach Yacht Club's Learn to Sail Day.

Being held this Sunday, December 9, the event is open to all and the club is expecting dozens of potential crew to take part in this first function of the season.

The day is split into two, with a classroom style 'lecture' in the morning that will see sailing experts give instruction on everything from how to use a winch to safety at sea. After lunch, crew will be transported to the participating yachts to enjoy couple of hours of learning the basics of sailing on the lagoon.

Registration for the day will be at 9am at the Boknake in the grounds of RRE Hotel and costs $20.

The Learn to Sail Day will be followed by the first race of the season on Sunday, December 16. Potential crew can vie for a spot on a yacht by attending the Club's skippers' meeting at their 'clubhouse' (a.k.a. Marshall Islands Resort) at 6pm on Friday, December 14.
