Push The Boat Out
Sunday 14 May 2017
1pm – 5pm
As part of the RYA’s Push The Boat Out initiative, Royal Forth Yacht Club are running a free open afternoon on Sunday 14 May. All are welcome. Come to our club house at Granton Harbour, just to the North of Edinburgh city centre. Experience the thrill of being out on the water. You will be able to have a go at sailing in yachts or dinghies, take a trip on a power boat, or just come and have a chat, enjoy the view from our club house and see what is going on. There will be something for everyone, young or old. No tickets, equipment or experience necessary, just turn up and we’ll help you find the right thing for you.
It will be a fun day out for all the family. Take advantage of the opportunity to try the various types of boats with the support and guidance of experienced crew. This could be a sailing dinghy, a racing yacht, a fast power boat or a larger cruising boat.
Watch demonstrations of craft on the water, see our junior members racing dinghies round the harbour and a rowing race between the local Sea Cadet units.
Food and refreshments will be available.
If you like what you see and want to join the club, we will be offering a 10% discount on new memberships for anyone who signs up on the day. Members will be on hand to tell you all about the activities on offer at the club, including cruising, racing and social activities.
If you would like more information, or you would be interested in running a stall at the event please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
