Open day for sailing this Friday at Leslie Dam

THE Warwick Sailing Club will hold an open day on Australia Day at Leslie Dam.

The club is aiming to attract some prospective new members. Qualified instructors will be on hand on Friday to teach people new to the sport the finer points of sailing.

Club official Gerry Roche said the club had seven junior boats for children up to 16 and four boats for seniors.

"You don't need your own boat to compete or go for a social sail,” he said.

"The club has life jackets for prospective new members and always has a safety/rescue boat on the water. A new boat shed has been erected in the past two years.”

Instructors will be on hand at the dam between 10am and 2pm Friday.

There will be a sausage sizzle at noon at the clubhouse.

Sailing enthusiasts welcome to turn up on Friday at the clubhouse. Head to Leslie Dam and turn left at the picnic area before the bridge and head to the first building on the foreshore.
