It’s Turn up and Go sailing, and it’s FREE!
Many Members wake up in the morning and ask themselves this question: Am I getting out enough?
Well here’s the answer: Meandering.
Meandering is a brilliant facility of the Club’s that matches boat owners with non-boat owners (or just people who fancy a sail in someone else’s boat).It is open to all ages and abilities and Meanderers can play as active or passive a part in the day’s sailing as they wish.
Whichever you choose it’s a great way to be out on the water, meet new people,enjoy sailing and have a good lunch.
It works like this: Meanderers (Skippers and crew) assemble on the lawn at 10 am on Thursdays during the season, ready for a day’s sailing and equipped with provisions for a hearty lunch en route. Just turn up no need to book.
Boats and crews are agreed and a lunch destination selected, say a sheltered cove near the Helford. The various boats then enjoy 2 to 3 hours sailing before arriving at said cove, where the boats anchor and raft up for what is always a leisurely and highly sociable meal on board, often as enjoyable as the sailing and sometimes the highlight!
Boats return to Falmouth around 4 pm.
So, why not get out more? Bring a friend who’s not a member if you want to see if they like Meandering. Maybe they’d join the Club.
Meanderers’ Lunch – book your place!
If you’ve been meandering this year, or even just thought about it, please book your place at the post season lunch at the Club on Wednesday November 8th, 12.00 for 12.30.
This is always a very jolly event, and an opportunity – for all those for whom a day on the water (with a long, leisurely lunch) is one of life’s great pleasures – to meet up and reminisce. If you know of possible future meanderers who are not current members why not consider bringing them as guests; it’s often a good way into the Club.
The menu with 2 and 3 course options is good value and attached here.
Please be kind enough to sign up in the book in the bar with your choice of menu, or if that is tricky for you Hugh Kellett has said he will sign up for you if you email him at firstname.lastname@example.org. He has also asked for any good photos you have of this season’s days out to be emailed to him, for an undisclosed reason.
Remember it’s Turn up and Go Sailing. It’s fun, it’s for all ages and abilities and it’s FREE.
