Sail your way to a new hobby

Have your say

SAILING clubs across South Yorkshire are encouraging more people to try the hobby.

The Yorkshire and Humber branch of the Royal Yachting Association arranged for a fleet of vessels to hit the waters in a day devoted to the sport.

Rotherham Sailing Club signed up to the event, called Push the Boat Out. It will host a Sail for Gold open day on July 21 at Carver Way, Harthill, Sheffield, from 1pm.

David Staniforth, chairman of the RYA in Yorkshire, said: “Our sailors have achieved great things and GB is currently the top sailing nation.”
