Just have fun

Just have fun Image

At the Docklands Yacht Club, sailing is only part of the attraction.

It’s more about getting involved with others to build a great club in an emerging and exciting part of Melbourne.

The club’s new commodore Sonya Staley certainly puts people ahead of sailing.

“If you don’t want to go for a sail, then just come down for a chat,” she said.  “Come and sit with us on the deck and watch the setting sun reflect off Docklands and the city.”

Sonya replaced Terry O’Donnell who recently retired due to ill health.  It’s a hard act to follow as Terry injected enormous amounts of energy and passion into the club.

The Docklands Yacht Club is based at the end of North Wharf Road in Shed 2.  Docklanders will recognise the club’s distinctive blue and yellow shade sails on the Victoria Harbour side of the shed.

Apart from being a social hub, the club provides basic instruction and training for anyone interested in trying sailing.  It offers its facilities to interested sailors every second and fourth Sundays of the month from 11am.

Commodore Staley said sailing was a great activity for families and the club’s Access dinghies were perfect for beginners.

Sonya said she was honoured to be nominated as commodore and her focus for her term would be to make people feel welcome.

“I am a great socialiser.  Everyone is welcome.  I just want people to come down and have some fun,” she said.

Sonya can be contacted on 0400 932 477 or (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address). For more information, see http://www.docklands.yachting.org.au.
