Warwick club keen to see more people out on water

SAILING: Numbers are booming in the Warwick Sailing Club with action on Leslie Dam on the first and third Sundays of the month.

Club commodore Gerry Roche said the plan next month was to have morning and afternoon races each competition day with a barbecue lunch in between.

"In the past, we have traditionally only had one race each day," Roche said.

"At the moment it is social sailing but we are keen to start some trophy races.

"The club has a lot of perpetual trophies but we lost at least a decade of racing due to the low level of the dam."

In the past week, Roche fielded three phone calls seeking information on the club.

"We have 10 family members and eight individual members," he said.

"Three members from the Stanthorpe area with boats have signed up and more are interested."

The club has two sailing boats for use by prospective new members and the rescue boat.

Neil Stiff is the club qualified sailing instructor who will undertake some coaching on a Saturday morning.

For more information call Gerry Roche on 4661 4028.
