Update from Phuket Yacht Club – sailing on the up for kids

Phuket Yacht ClubThe children had a great day sailing this Sunday with ‘Storm’. The breeze was up but children enjoyed a good introduction to sailing and learning all about boats.
Children from the previous course also slipped into the boats after the session and had a play on the water. Not quite ready for racing yet but making a good start.  If you would like to help out with the children’s sailing please let me know . Thanks to Gabe, Andrew. Mick and Leon for assisting… many thanks to Kevin Gillow from Soldair Marine for giving the optimists some TLC.
