New Safety Boat a Bonus !

Thanks to Phill, former Sailing secretary,  for  donating his spare yacht tender to use as a safety boat for the learn to sail course.” I love it”,  exclaimed Neil, ” as its so quiet you can actually speak to trainee sailors without the noise of a petrol engine in the background.” At least six members have completed powerboat training in order to use the boat to assist dinghy sailors in the water or provide coaching whilst motoring alongside anyone on the water practising skills.It gives new members the  confidence that they can assisted in the event of  experiencing difficulties on the lake. Our long term plan is to obtain funding for a conventional style RYA approved safety boat. This is a good boat to use in the  interim as it towed a heron and 2  persons to shore  easily last week.
