EVEN more people will get the chance to get into sailing this summer after Rugby and Daventry Sailing Club (RDSC) was awarded £10,000 from Sport England to buy four new boats.

The club, based on Drayton Reservoir in Daventry, has invested in four Hartley 12 dinghies that can be sailed by one person,

To celebrate the arrival of the new boats for the 2014 season, RDSC invites people to enjoy a free taste of sailing.

The special event will happen on Saturday, May 17, as the club hosts an anyone-welcome Open Day.

Meanwhile, if you already know you want to learn to sail this year, and get involved in a fantastic, social outdoor sport where everyday life really does get left on the shore, the club’s adult start sailing courses start on Saturday, April 12, with further courses scheduled for June and September.

This will give people all of the basic skills of sailing and the chance to carry on and improve them.

The club also runs junior Start Sailing courses.
