We are teaming up with our friends at Yorkshire Outdoor Swimmers and Rotherham Model Yacht Club to hold a joint Open Day at Harthill Reservoir. If you are new to sailing and want to give it a try come along and we will provide an experienced instructor to assist you on your first sail for free. You need to bring a pair of shoes (ideally old trainers) you don’t mind getting a little wet and we’d recommend bringing a change of clothes and a towel.
You can also:
Try Open Water Swimming with one of Yorkshire Outdoor Swimmers experienced ‘buddy’s’
Learn about the clubs
Learn about the sailing courses we offer
Learn about the powerboat courses we offer
Just come and have a fun day by the water
Food will be available from Sunshine Pizza Oven as well as drinks and refreshments in the club house.
This is part of a larger national event ‘Push the Boat Out‘ organised by the Royal Yacht Association.
We hope you will join us to find out more on
Saturday 20th May from 12.00pm.
