Push the Boat Out

This coming Sunday May 21st we are offering FREE Taster sessions for sailing, SUP & kayak with RYA Push The Boat Out.

This is a great opportunity to get out on the water to enjoy the stunning surroundings, meet some great people who are passionate about various water sports and to try all these sports for yourself in a safe supported environment.

From racing across the water on a high performance catamaran, cruising in a Quba or paddling your way along the shore line on a paddle board or kayak, there is something to suit all tastes and levels of confidence.

Come along between 1300-1700 on Sunday with your friends and family to make the most of this fantastic opportunity :-)

If you shop in Hunstanton or Heacham Tesco’s – keep an eye out for the ‘Bags of Help’ section where you can vote for three local projects – one of which is for some new SUP’s for Hunstanton Sailing Club  :-)

Each time you make a purchase you get a token (unless you use the self-service tills) – place the token in the slot of the project you’d like to support  :-)

The promotion runs throughout May and June…

  • The Bags of Help initiative is supported by money from the five pence charge levied on single-use carrier bags in Tesco stores.
  • So far Bags of Help has awarded over £28.5 million to  more than 4,000 community projects.

Quick reminder that the club sailing season kicks off this Sunday (23rd).
We’ve switched the starting time to the afternoon to better suit the tides – meet down the club at 2pm :-)
 
This is an open session to those wanting to race for fun / or dust off the cobwebs.
 
Participants need to be capable of sailing from the shore and back to the shore unsupervised in moderate conditions. Those that participated in at least two of the training sessions last year should be ok to join in. Use of own boat or club boats if you don’t have your own.
 
Hopefully see you there!
