More than 45 Volunteers, 14 keelboats, two Cadets, two Pacers, seven Optis and four power boats operated non-stop for five hours.
There were at least 163 keelboat rides, more than 100 dinghy rides and, importantly, 360 sausages and 40 lentil burgers.
We have received so much positive feedback from participants and visitors of the day about the wonderful experience and new friends made.
We had 10 new members applying on the day and loads of enquiries about courses and sailing pathways.
To all our Discover Sailing Day volunteers, THANK YOU!!! for volunteering your very precious time! Everybody was so generous with their skill, knowledge and vessels alike for our Discover Sailing Day. Your support ensured the day was highly successful and showed true camaraderie, something that we all pride ourselves on as Royal Melbourne Yacht Squadron Club members. With the tremendous contributions of generously donating of their valuable time, showcasing our wonderful facilities, their knowledge, skill and those that could, their yachts, we simply could not have done this without our volunteers!
We hope everyone that was at the Club on Sunday enjoyed meeting new people and most importantly making a positive difference in our community at RMYS.
