“BE READY FOR SOME ENJOYABLE SAILING!”

Join us Sunday afternoon 23rd September on ‘Pride of Man III’ and familiarise yourself with what’s involved during a sail.

Whether you’re a new member or would like to obtain ‘reminders’ you’ll be equally welcome! We intend running two ‘quizzes’ for preparing the boat for a sail, down below, and on deck, and then motoring off the berth to the bridge and back, putting our results into practice. 

We’ll also be announcing the dates and times for monthly evening sessions for those of you who wish to be fully familiar with what’s involved.

Just e-mail martinsewell@manx.net, or crewtraining@manx.net  so we know you’ll be with us on the 23rd September (or phone/message 491785)

Many thanks,

Martin
