Push The Boat Out, our Open Day on Sunday 20th May - a wonderful afternoon!

Tonbridge Town Sailing Club's annual Open Day on Sunday 20 May 2018 was again set to coincide with the RYA's nationwide Push The Boat Out initative.  It was an oportunity for those that know little or nothing about sailing to find out more. 

It was one of our busisest and best Open Days, with well over 200 adults and children visiting our small club. The weather was very sunny and hot, with gentle wind.  The majority of visitors had a dinghy ride, and waited patiently for their buoyancy aid fitting and for their ride.   

Many club members worked extremely hard to prepare the club and grounds ready for the event, look after the visitors, give the dinghy rides, and help in the canteen selling drinks and the delicious cakes and cookies provided by members.  We received many favourable comments and thank yous from our visitors.  The RYA freebies and some sweeties from us as people left was the 'icing on the cake'! Everyone was happy and we were too - it was great to welcome so many people of all ages and from all walks of life.  
                         "We've had the most fantastic time, and just loved the sailing" said one mum,
                          "everyone was so friendly and welcoming too".

Keith Minster, the club's Commodore, adds that "this was just one of many favourable comments and thank-yous for the free event. We are pleased to have been able to welcome so many of the local community to our  club and share our love for the sport of dinghy-sailing".

At Open Day we welcomed some new members and filled the places on our training courses for this year - so if you have 'missed the boat' for this year, although we still have memberships available,  please contact us to make enquiries for 2019 learning to sail training courses .  
If you were unable to attend our Open Day and would like to find out more information,  please contact us  and we'll do our best to arrange a time for you to visit us.
