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.
Remember it’s Turn up and Go Sailing. It’s fun, it’s for all ages and abilities and it’s FREE.
Save the Date! – Meanderers’ Lunch – Wednesday 8 April
The ever popular and always jolly Meanderers’ pre-season lunch will take place on Wednesday 8th April, 12 for 12 30 and all members and guests are most welcome, meanderer or not. The menu looks great (click here) – all those wishing to attend should please let the Club know their choices in advance. This can be done by filling in the Events Book in the bar, phoning the Club on 01326312126 or 311105 or using the function booking link at the end of this newsletter.
This year’s event promises to be even jollier as we will combine forces with The Royal Naval Sailing Association (RNSA), many of whom are Club members and active meanderers. Most of you will know Ian Munday who wears two hats: not only does he run RNSA Falmouth but he also kindly organises the joint cruising programme for the Club and RNSA, and has done for some years. Unlike meandering, this programme is well organised (!) and planned well in advance. Some of the cruising involves overnighting (eg Fowey, Meva) but most is based on day trips, sometimes with a visit to a pub or local beauty spot. There’s also a small drinks budget. It’s a great programme that all social minded members are encouraged to get into their diaries. Why not give it a go? Click here for the full details of the 2020 cruising programme.
