An amazing opportunity to try dinghy sailing

The Vikings Sailing Club (VSC) is organising an Open Day at its premises at Haywharf on Sunday 20th May between 10.00 am and 6.00 pm.  During this day-long event, visitors to the club will be taken out on sailing boats so that they can feel the thrill of gliding over the water with just the power of wind whilst relaxing and enjoying the fascinating scenery of Marsamxetto Harbour, with the imposing bastions of Valletta and the fortifications of Manoel Island.

The club will be taking care of all the necessary equipment by providing the boats including safety gear and qualified instructors.  Furthermore, visitors to this event will be able to learn about the various courses on offer, including Skolasport and Summer on the move, as well as the club’s busy schedule of events.

Sailing is a very healthy and fulfilling sport or hobby suitable for all age groups.  VSC lays heavy emphasis on children and promotes sailing as an activity that teaches positive life-skills such as team work, self-reliance, decisiveness, navigation, survival and a sense of healthy competition.

VSC was set up in 1984 and today has over 200 members.  The club has a very active social calendar with an open and friendly atmosphere.  VSC is an accredited training centre for Skola Sport of Kunsill Malti Ghall-Isport, the Ministry of Education’s Youth Training Scheme.  It offers sailing courses throughout the whole year as well as introductory sessions.

For those who have never been to the Viking Sailing Club, this is situated just a few metres downhill from the entrance of the Excelsior Hotel in Floriana, near the Maritime Squadron down at Haywharf. You can also consult the club’s website on the following:

So make Sunday 20th May a different Sunday by treating yourself, your family and even friends to a sensational new experience.  We hope that we will see you with your families and friends on the day.
