Yachting Victoria invites everyone keen to try sailing on a trailable yacht to head to Melbourne City Marina in Melbourne’s Docklands precinct on October 20, 2013 for the Trailable Yacht Discover Sailing Day.
There, a variety of trailable yachts will be available for the public to try out, with all yachts and safety equipment being provided by the owners. The day is free to attend and is certain to be a fun day for the whole family, with show bags and giveaways plus the opportunity to learn about the social trailable yacht sailing community.
Discover Sailing Program Manager, Gavin Wall encourages families to hop aboard and go for a sail along the marina, explore a variety of trailable yachts in a range of classes, and speak to yacht owners about their sailing experiences in both competitive sailing and casual cruising.
“Trailable yachts come in many shapes and sizes with sleeping and cooking facilities and are a great option for families or couples who enjoy holidays or weekends out on the water, but like to stay dry,” said Wall.
Discover Sailing is a Yachting Australia initiative offering a variety of programs including Discover Sailing Days, Discover Sailing Week, Discover Sailing Experiences and Courses, and Discover Sailing Training Centres. More than 3000 Victorians participated in last year’s inaugural Discover Sailing program, with many taking up yacht club memberships and signing up for Learn to Sail programs.
