Pink Sailing was conceived and launched in 2012 as an opportunity for ladies who had either never set foot in a dinghy or else spent some time crewing for their other half but would really like to discover a bit more about their personal abilities.
The ladies meet at the clubhouse on a Thursday evening around 6pm from springtime (as soon as the weather is reasonable) through summer. There is a great sense of camaraderie and encouragement - they even have their own team strip and Pink Commodore!
The Pink Sailors now have their own Facebook group to keep up to date with weekly plans, news and get togethers! Join the group here
