THE Garrucha dinghy sailors of‘Santa Irene Club de Vela’ are set to hold an Open Day later this month in the hope of attracting new members and visitors.

The Open Day, which will be held on Sunday April 29 from 11am until 3pm, will provide visitors with information regarding both single and family membership, including introductory offers for the remaining year till January 2019.

There will be several dinghies for sale on the day, while a barbecue and refreshments will be available.

It will be possible to book a time slot for a ‘taster’ session in a club dinghy for absolute beginners to the sport, and they hope to be able to offer this on the day after the Open Day, on Monday April 30, weather permitting.

The club is a friendly,welcoming, international group of both experienced and novice sailors, who meet every Sunday, in the dinghy park situated at the very north end of the marina/Puerto Deportiva, Garrucha.

Although the club does not offer formal training, it is possible for complete beginners, or those with some prior experience, to crew with one of the experienced members, in a club ‘Wayfarer’ sailing dinghy.

Advice will be given on the day about more formal training in the region. Boat owners have the possibility of keeping their boats in their dinghy park for a yearly fee.
