If you would like to try out sailing please get in touch and one of our members would be delighted to take you and your family for a sail or even a race! If your children would like to learn how to sail then check out our summer sailing courses or our Sunday sailing club! New members will be made very welcome.
Push the Boat Out
The club was buzzing on Sunday! Huge thanks to Susan, to her team of helpers and to all the volunteers who showed up and worked so hard on Sunday to ensure that Push The Boat Out was a great success at SLYC this year. The club was full of people, from young children to more mature types, who told us how much they enjoyed having a taste of fun on the water in sailing yachts and on motor boats.
We hope to welcome at least some of our visitors back as members and have quite a number who will be joining our summer sailing courses.
Well done everyone!
Visiting yachts are very welcome, but please be advised we have 1m or less at the pontoon at LW. The clubhouse is normally busy except Monday, Friday and Sunday nights in season and will be locked at other times. To enquire about staying and facilities please call the office on +44(0)28 9754 1883 or e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
