Taster Day, 11th June, ...
MBSC is holding a Taster Day for people who are thinking of taking up sailing and / or joining the club. We will have all the club boats manned by experienced sailors and are offering about a hour's sail in the bay so you can get a taste of the sport and the area. There will be hot and cold refreshments up at the club house and you can take a look around the changing rooms, bar, galley and boat park.
We have 14 places in each of two sessions - morning, starting about 11am, and afternoon, starting around 2pm.
Minimum age is 8, and anyone under the age of 16 has to have parental consent and a parent present (though the parent doesn't need to get wet :-)).
As a special bonus - if you join on the day then the normal joining fee of £42 is waived!
Please come down!
