Discover Sailing Day is a national event, which invites people of all ages and abilities to visit their local sailing club and try their hand at sailing. This event is free to participate in and affords the public the unique opportunity to discover sailing hands-on.
It is a great way to immerse oneself in the sport; you will learn everything about safety, accessibility and affordability and will also be invited to join your local club and enjoy regular sailing activities.
This year's event will be held on Sunday, 27th October 2013.
Sailing will be held in front of the Cleveland Yacht Club House in Moreton Bay and visitors will be invited to board the dinghy training boat (Pacer), to enjoy a 1/2 hour to 1 hour experience on the water.

If you have some sailing experience, you can join the crew of a club member's Catamaran for a more exciting ride. Cleveland Yacht Club members will also be on hand to show visitors how to handle ropes and lines.
