A huge effort went into our Open Day this year, with advertising, press releases and the stand in Telford Town Centre and it was satisfying to see that the effort was duly rewarded with a great turnout on the day. Â We had great support from the RYA and it was brilliant to see the youngsters taking to the fleet of Toppers with such enthusiasm, and the race around thge lake to pcik up the floating balls. Â The unveiling of the additions to the Sailability fleet by the Lord Lieutenant of Shropshire, Algernon Heber-Percy was a moment of particular note. For the second year TSC has been able to boast the presence of the famous “Swallow” of Swallows and Amazons film fame, and many visitors were able to enjoy the experience of sailing in a traditional sailing boat. Â For many there was the opportunity to try sailing for the first time. Â It would be an understatement to say that we gained the response we sought: our expectations were exceeded. As a result we are really pleased to be able to extend a warm welcome to all our new members and look forward to seeing you down at the club very soon. Â We were also able to fill up all the spaces on our sailing courses. Â So a great day made successful by a dedicated team that made it all happen – you know who you are! More pictures here
