Simulating sailing on land at the Melbourne Village Carnival

A huge thank you to our team of volunteers and everyone who joined us at the Melbourne Village Carnival on the 13th July.

What a day, the carnival was buzzing, the theme was ‘Under the Sea’ and Staunton sailors – Nick, Stuart, Luke, Amanda, Thorsten, Rachael, Herb, Finn, Rosie, Jenny, Ben and Louis – did a superb job of showcasing sailing and the club.

Thanks to RYA Midlands we had a visual feast, with the sailing simulator, a fusion dinghy. Set up so that young sailors can be put through their paces. The simulator makes it easy to go through land drills, tacking and gybing and giving would-be sailors an on-land taste of sailing without getting their feet wet! Over 50 locals had a go on the simulator and our team were on hand to talk sailing at all levels.
