Long Weekend Cruising Sailing Taster

Although dinghy sailing has dominated club activity since cyclone Pam the VCYC is first and foremost a cruising yacht club.

The club is anxious to not loose sight of this and is offering a free taster cruising sailing session this Monday to anyone (adults, children and even whole families) interested in experiencing the more gentlemanly aspect of our sport.

Everybody taking advantage of this opportunity will be offered a turn to sail the yacht they are allocated to so it will be a great experience, especially for younger members of the 'crew'.

All you need to do is meet at the VCYC (Port Vila Boatyard) at 11am this Monday morning with your eski packed with whatever beverages you enjoy and a snack for lunch.

Weather conditions permitting you may also have an opportunity to dive overboard for some snorkeling and if this appeals to you remember to also bring your bathers, towel, hat and sunscreen!

So that we have an indication of how many people to provide places for please would you telephone Gary on 7750795 and let him know how many people will be in your group.
