Ahoy Hobsons Bay! It's your year to sail the open seas

SAILING the bay is one way to be more active in the new year.

Hobsons Bay Yacht Club offers free “try sailing” days, when trainers will take participants for a sailing race and teach them the basics.

Club Commodore Ashley Stevens said age and ability were no barriers, because the club even conducted a sailing program for people with a disability.

And with most boats needing a crew, boat ownership would not stop participation either, he said.

“You don’t need to own a boat to sail,” Mr Stevens said.

“Our motto is ‘sailing for the community’.

“You come into the club and we’ll get you on to a boat.”

Mr Stevens said sailing could provide both a social and physical activity for those looking to try something different in the new year.

“It can be physical depending on the level of the race and if there’s a lot of tacking involved,” he said.

“You also build up a lot of camaraderie.

“It’s a really good way to go out, meet people and build up really good friendships.”
