New boats for sailing club open

Rugby Editorial 14th May, 2014 Updated: 27th Oct, 2016

SAILING: RUGBY & Daventry Sailing Club have some new Hartley 12 dinghys that have arrived just in time for their open day on Saturday, May 17.

The boats have been purchased as a result of the club being awarded £10,000 from Sports England to enable them to promote the sport.

Commodore Sylvia Dawson said: “these boats will allow more people to sail independently and reduce the need for boat ownership.”

On Saturday the public can find out more about getting into this exhilarating sport by participating in one of their RYA training courses available for adults or youths 8+.

The open day will take place between 1.30pm and 4pm at Drayton reservoir, Daventry.
