This Saturday, 27th August, Ullswater Yacht Club will be holding a come and try day, and have asked Penrith Canoe Club if we'd like to do something as well.
This is all part of ITV's switch off day, and camera crews will be filming the event. As well as this, ex Olympic sailing athletes will be attending the event which is expected to attract 500-1,000 people.
As a club we are hoping to hold sessions for the general public to try kayaking as well as canoe polo. We also want to hold demo games and training sessions. However we need your help! In order for it to be a successful day, we need club members down to help the general public into kit as well as be on the water playing and training.
The event runs from 10am- 4pm, there will be food and drink available as well as the chance to try sailing yourselves. If you can help, please email [email protected] ASAP!
