Learn to sail at free event this Saturday

THE Southern side of the Causeway Lake will be a hive of activity on Saturday, November 5 when Sailability Capricornia and Keppel Bay Sailing Club join forces to bring the community the very first, joint effort, Come and Try day.

Sailability president Mr Steve Livingstone said the day opens up the opportunity for young people of all ages and all abilities to come along and try out sailing.

"This is a free event and we have a sausage sizzle, giveaways, a live radio broadcast by 4RO and lots of fun,” Mr Livingstone said.

"Both the Keppel Bay Sailing Club and Sailability will have qualified trainers on hand to assist and the event is held in the calm waters of the Causeway Lake, which offers the ideal location to learn the recreational sport.”

Keppel Bay Sailing Sports Coordinator Brent Pearson said the two clubs have enjoyed a long-term synergy to create more opportunities for people of all ages to have a go at sailing.

"Our primary focus is on encouraging more people to become involved in healthy outdoor recreation, and let's face it, we live in the perfect environment for it,” Mr Pearson said.

"We are all looking forward to the Come and Try day and hope the community will come out in force to enjoy a relaxing day out.”

The Come and Try day will run from 9am till noon.

Open to all ages and abilities.
