Rotary powers the sails

27 Mar 2012

The Rotary Club of Docklands has funded two sails for the local yacht club so it can continue its community sailing and activities for disabled and underprivileged sailors.

Docklands Yacht Club training principal Ray Allen said the sails would be matched to two refurbished Pacer boats the club had purchased with a City of Melbourne grant.

Mr Allen said these boats needed new sails before they could be used and he expressed thanks to local Rotarians for the $2186 needed for the sails.

“The sail maker has included reefing points in the design which will allows novice sailors to handle stronger winds with smaller sail area,” Mr Allen said.

Docklands Rotary and Docklands Yacht Club will be holding their third joint venture Community Try Sailing day on Sunday, April 15 from the pontoon outside Shed 2 (next to the Bolte Bridge) at the end of North Wharf Rd. For enquiries call Mark on 0418 322 299 or Ray 0429 868 304.

Docklands Rotary is also hosting a prospective-members’ information lunch between 12.30pm and 1.30pm at Watermark in Victoria Harbour on Tuesday, April 17 with free finger food and orange juice.  Enquiries should be directed to Adrian Stanners on 0434 071 990.
