The committee extends it gratitude to all who have made the Try Sailing Tuesday a big success.
Our Facebook and Website campaigners Nuala Treacy and Kevin Brennan who looked after the PR side of things and the priceless support from WLRFM’s Des Whelan, Oliver McCann and Mary O’Neill. Their advertising campaign and broadcast from the water helped us again with giving our club a wider appeal. THANK YOU ALL.
Over 4 Tuesdays we maxed our capacity and took to the water with over 180 guests in total.
It is up to all of us to turn these interested people into new members, crew for our cruisers, to build on our future. You will see new faces in the club house they could be your new friends to sail with.
Thanks, in no small part, to all of those who have assisted in organising, and I must say fantastic helpful instructors; this season’s instructors are a pleasure to work with !!. A special mention to our cruiser skippers who welcomed our introducees on board; John Cassidy, Finbar Cowman, Bill McConnell, Jamies Cleary, Conor O’Nolan, Charlie Boland, Dave Marchant, Robert Marchant, Tom Kennedy and Barry McConnell.
We are now evaluating how to build on this; extend it, make a smaller format or integrate it into racing evenings somehow. ? Any advise welcome and support for ideas.
