Friday Fun Sailing - not just for kids!
05 May 2019
Fun Friday is back again after a successful summer last year and the benefits of being a HYC member is you can take part with your family too. Starting 17th May and running through to the 23rd August, our club will be offering Fun Friday evenings on selected dates throughout the summer. With each event commencing at 6pm, there will be a broad range of activities for all ages and abilities to enjoy ranging from supervised sailing to stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, and a pirate trip to Ireland’s Eye for fun and games.
Alongside this there will be food and drinks specials in the bar and children's menus. Members are also encouraged to bring a friend to introduce them to sailing. So on each of the Fun Fridays count on enjoying some great water activities, and social opportunities for the whole family - all within the confines of our spectacular club. A full programme is below with an online booking facility for people wishing to partake.
