Sailing club to hold open days

Have your say

AN OPEN weekend is being held to mark the 40th anniversary of a South Yorkshire sailing club.

People are invited to take part in free taster sessions and there will also be a barbecue.

The event is at Ulley Sailing Club, at Ulley Country Park, off Pleasley Road, Aughton, on Sunday, May 6, and Monday, May 7, between 11am and 5pm on each day.

A club spokesman said: “We are open to all who wish to get out on the water. The club is now successfully back in full operation after several years of disruption following damage to the dam wall during the floods of 2007.

“Membership is at levels not seen since the 1970s and we want to continue to increase the number of people having fun and healthy exercise on the water.”

People are asked to dress suitably for sailing, including shoes that will withstand getting wet, and a change of clothing.
