On Saturday afternoon 1st June Holyhead Sailing Club hosted a try-a-sail day for people interested in yacht sailing.
The rain that blighted the morning cleared by 1pm and by the time we got out on the water the winds were just perfect – gentle enough to not be scary but plenty enough to fill our sails. Most of the try-a-sailors were novices with a few having a little prior experience. We sailed around the bay, one boat running some training drills for crewing with the try-a-sailors up on the rail, tacking around the boats in the harbour before heading out. The last boat cruised back in around 6pm.
A fun afternoon was had by all with some great feedback from both the sailors and the skippers. Thank you to all who took part.
