Taster Sails

As you will all know we receive a substantial grant each year from the Plymouth Area Association of the Civil Service Sports Club. This extra money goes a long way towards helping us meet our annual operating costs and keeping any fees increases to a manageable amount. We are always trying to grow our membership and the Area Association is also keen that we offer more to local CSSC members to encourage them to take part in sailing and boating.

With this in mind we would like to be able a couple of days of “taster sails” for local CSSC members and we are looking for volunteers to take some people out for a short sail in their boats. We would probably run the event over a weekend and ask that you take some people out for an hour or two for a local sail and a chat about sailing and boating. We are looking for help for just one (or both) of the days for as much time as you can spare.

As the event will be an official CSSC taster-event all members will be covered by CSSC insurance and we can assist with the supply of additional lifejackets if necessary.

If you think you can help please let me know ASAP so that we can start to plan a couple of days when we can run the event. It would be good if we could show the Area Association (and CS Sailing) that we are an active club that wants to encourage new members and help CSSC members get into sailing.
