Goring Thames Sailing Club Open Day Saturday 1 April 2017
GTSC is holding its annual Open Day On Saturday 1 April 2017 between 11am and 3:30pm. The Open Day is a fun family day out in the fresh air with the opportunity to get out onto the water to try a new sport, or to resurrect old skills.
The club has maintained its fleet of boats and we now have over 20 single and double-handed boats available for training purposes and use of club members. The club boats will be available for use on Open Day by visitors, either accompanied by a club member who is an experienced sailor, or unaccompanied depending upon experience level and weather conditions. Buoyancy aids will be provided for everyone using the river and the club’s safety boats will be on hand throughout the day. There are changing facilities at the club, including hot showers in case of any unexpected capsizes. Please come prepared by wearing suitable footware and not forgetting a change of clothes and a towel. Sailing is a watersport and even without a capsize can result in wet feet and damp clothing!
The club house contains a fully licensed bar, which will be open during the day, stocking local beers in addition to international branded drinks and a variety of soft drink options. Tea, coffee and hot chocolate are also available from the tea bar. Refreshments will be on sale all day, including a BBQ at lunch time and cakes, ice cream and confectionary throughout the event.
