With summer weather well and truly here, well between showers, why not come and try boating at a very friendly and local club? We have one of the most beautiful lakes in the UK to sail on just around the corner?
Guy Davison from Llangorse Sailing Club says “The lake boasts its own Llangorse Sailing Club run entirely by volunteers. The club’s Open Day is on Saturday 6th July when we open our doors to all”. It’s our “Taster” day and they are keen to welcome you to come and have a go at sailing, see the Club and meet the very welcoming club members.
“We’ll provide the buoyancy aids,” Guy adds. “All you need is a set of clothes you don’t mind getting a bit damp, plus a waterproof top, trainers, towel and a change of dry clothes and sun-cream for that sunny day!” The event’s open to children accompanied by parents and adults of course! Bring the family or friends, a picnic and make a day of it!
The event is open to guests between 11.30am and 3pm. “Do come and join us,” Guy says. “No booking in is needed, just come on the day!”
If you join the club you can sign up to learn to sail and safely drive a powerboat. Training is delivered by RYA qualified instructors. The club runs a very active youth sailing group, with a number of those now being selected for RYA Youth Squad inclusion and possible National team selection. The club runs a full season of racing and sailing.
