Open Eye: We are sailing... again
Thursday 07 January 1999
Another part of the re-launch consists of a new approach to encouraging absolute beginners, of all ages, and rusty older hands to take to the water. (Two members started sailing at the age of 50+ last year.) The club can offer considerable help in introducing new members to our boats followed by free formal instruction up to RYA Level Two, if required. At this level members are deemed to be adequately qualified and experienced to sail without supervision. In support of the re-launch a new web site has been created at http://sail.open.ac.uk/ .
OUSC members are affiliated to Haversham Sailing Club (HSC), and they have the full use of HSC club-house, changing rooms and bar, as well as training and social events.
Members range from genuine novices to a Royal Yachting Association (RYA) qualified instructor. There is no joining fee and other benefits include an initial free membership until March.
Annual membership will be about pounds 35, with family membership for an extra pounds 5. There's also free introduction to sailing, free instruction up to RYA certification and the use of boats and sailboards without charge for 365 days a year.
Non-sailors can also enjoy the walk around the beautiful Haversham Lake, with free camping.
