PUSH THE BOAT OUT AT DRAYCOTE WATER SC
'have-a-go' at sailing festival
STILL TIME TO TRY SAILING AND PUSH THE BOAT OUT AT DRAYCOTE WATER SC
There is still time to Push The Boat Out as Draycote Water SC, near Rugby, invites you and your family to try sailing for FREE on Saturday (21 May) as part of the national ‘have-a-go’ at sailing festival organised by sailing’s national governing body, the RYA.
Hundreds of people enjoyed their first taste of sailing across Warwickshire and Solihull last weekend as RYA Push The Boat Out kicked off for the nine day festival on Saturday 14 May, with even more locals set to get afloat this weekend.
All you will need to get afloat is some comfortable clothes and old trainers you don’t mind getting wet and, weather depending, a waterproof and/or sunscreen. Buoyancy aids, equipment and safety brief will be provided by the venues and refreshments will be available.
In total RYA Push The Boat Out will see no fewer than 34 events take place at 25 venues throughout the West Midlands, of almost 350 nationwide, over the course of the nine days.
Events can include dinghy sailing, windsurfing, bigger boats, sailing for the disabled and even powerboat rides, and although each event is different, all are geared to appeal to as many people as possible, regardless of age, ability or experience.
