Your chance to sail away

Have your say

ASPIRING sailors can take to the water on Monday at an open day held by a Sheffield boating club.

South Yorkshire Sailing Club, based at Underbank Reservoir in Stocksbridge, is running the event from 1pm to 4pm.

Visitors will get the chance to embark on a ‘trial sail’ with members during the event.

Refreshments will be available, and visitors can also tour the club’s facilities, which include a classroom, kitchen and balcony with views over the reservoir.

Participants are asked to bring along a change of clothes, a towel and old shoes for sailing.

The club celebrates its 60th anniversary this year, with membership starting at £5 per week during the sailing season, which runs from April to November.
