DHS Sailing Club

Sailing 25 August (2) - Copy

On Friday afternoon the Sailing Club spent the afternoon on the Pacers sailing in the bay with Mongezi from Sail Africa and Lauritz from Denmark – a perfect way to end a school week if I do say so myself!
We were fortunate that the strong winds predicted for Friday had calmed to a perfect 10 knots and we were able to take two Pacers out with 5 crew and a skipper each.
Some of the boys got a chance to skipper, others to fly the main sail and others to manage the jib when tacking – all important jobs on a keel boat which requires teamwork and good listening skills to crew effectively.
With such lovely wind we were able to fully experience heeling over (the boat leaning over on its side in the water) for extended periods – nothing like sliding down a deck to teach you to pay attention!
We look forward to another session of dinghy sailing on Saturday afternoon.  If you are interested in joining in the fun, or even coming along to watch, please feel free to do so.
The fun is happening from 12pm at the Royal Natal Yacht Club!
