THIS GIRL CAN event at Midland Sailing Club 24 January 2016

#ThisGirlCan Start Sailing in the warm and dry - in January!

On Sunday 24th January, from 1pm to 4.30pm we will be running five indoor learning activities that will give people who want to start sailing in 2016 some of the basic knowledge, skills and confidence to sail independently. 

At the end of the afternoon session the girls (ladies, dads and boys are also welcome!) will have a knowledge of the benefits of sailing, be able to name the parts of a boat, rig a dinghy, have practical knowledge of how to steer, tack and gybe a boat, and be able to tie knots.

On successful completion each participant will receive an RYA Start Sailing Logbook.  The skills learnt will provide a sound foundation for completing an RYA Start Sailing Course later in the year – when the weather is a bit warmer!

Kick start 2016 by learning new skills.  Places are limited - sign up now at or turn up on the day, Midland Sailing Club is located at Edgbaston Reservoir, Icknield Port Road. B16 0AA
