RYA Push the Boat Out Weekender
Following the huge success of the 2012 Push the Boat Out
Day ahead of the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the RYA is
delighted to announce that ‘Push the Boat Out’ is back for 2013 -
and this time for a whole weekend!
The RYA ‘Push the Boat Out Weekender’ will take place over the
weekend of 18-19 May and will see clubs, centres and marinas across
the country opening their doors to their local communities and
hosting a ‘Push the Boat Out’ event.
From open days and ‘have a go’ sessions, to treasure hunts and
fun regattas, there will be events for all to enjoy.
“We were overwhelmed by the enthusiasm and spectacle of last
year’s ‘Push the Boat Out’ Day”, said Jon White, RYA Sport
“Everyone who got involved commented how much fun they had
taking part and running their events. It was great for clubs to
show their local communities what they have to offer and to tie in
with a national event.
“With such overwhelmingly positive feedback, we simply had to do
it again. This national event is the perfect opportunity for clubs
to hold ‘have a go’ sessions and to enable people of all ages and
abilities to experience why sailing is such a fantastic sport” Jon
With so many people being inspired by the London 2012 Games, the
‘Push the Boat Out Weekender’ will encourage people to get down to
their local sailing venue, have a go themselves and find out how
just easy it is to get involved. It’s also a great opportunity for
regular sailors to get out on the water and to show their support
for the sport and the event.
On The Water and The British Marine Federation is one of the
many supporters of Push the Boat Out Day.
