When the RYA publicity team asked if they could come along to our May Open Day we naturally said “Yes” as were keen to show them what our small but friendly club does each year when it opens the boat park gates and takes local residents for a taster sail.
They took lots of photos, praised us for a fantastic turnout and for being a club with great diversity.
They included our quotes on their monthly news bulletins to sailing clubs on their website along with one picture and that was it, we thought. But…little did we know they were planning on producing a major article in their magazine about Push the Boat Out Days across Sailing Clubs nationwide and were using their great shots in the article.
Even more surprising is how the photos taken on 18th May at South Norwood lake dominate the feature with Croydon having 4 out of the 7 published.
A great tribute to the volunteer members who worked hard that day to run the event. View the magazine at the Club hut when you drop in for Sunday morning Coffee time or even better become a RYA member and enjoy your own copy of their quarterly magazine.
