Whitby Yacht Club hosts welcome night

WHITBY Yacht Club is holding its annual ‘welcome night’ on Saturday 30 April.

The club wants to introduce more people to the sport of sailing and the welcome night is a time for people to meet skippers and find out how they can get involved.

A spokesman for the club said: “Whether you fancy racing or just want to cruise, boat owners are always in need of crew.

“This is a great opportunity to learn to sail as well as being a member of a fantastic club with amazing benefits and facilities.

“If you have always wanted to sail through Whitby’s historic bridge, come down to the club and find out what all the fuss is about.”

The welcome night is at Whitby Yacht Club, above the lifeboat museum opposite The Bandstand, from 7.30pm.
