The Discover Sailing Twilight Experience generates more crew for Members

The Royal Prince Alfred Yacht Club’s Sail Training department introduced the Discover Sailing Twilight Program in late November of 2016. The program’s aim is simple, introduce members of the local community to the sport of sailing in the relaxed environment of a Thursday night twilight under the guidance of a qualified instructor.

Since then, The Club has introduced or re-introduced over 25 members of the local community to twilight sailing, many of whom have gone on to start training in The Club’s Adult Learn to Sail Keelboat program or started crewing on members boats. The Club introduces the participants of the Discover Sailing Twilight program to the crew with me program where they can register interest to crew on Members boats in the various events the Club offers.

To get your hands on some crew, make sure your boat is online on the Alfred’s crew with me crew register software, which can be accessed from this link, http://rpayc.com.au/sailing/crew-with-me.

For more information on either the crew with me software or to go sailing with the Alfred’s Discover Sailing Twilight Program, please contact the sailing office on 9998 3761.
