Newbiggin-by-the-Sea Sailing Club.

Newbiggin-by-the-Sea Sailing Club will hold an open day on Saturday as part of the Royal Yachting Association’s Push The Boat Out initiative.

There will be basic tuition for handling a dinghy, or the chance to experience sailing on larger vessels, with wetsuits and buoyancy aids provided.

Participants need a change of clothes, trainers and a towel.

Club member Chris Hudson said: “It’s a great way to learn a new sport.”

It is hoped the event will attract new members to the club.

Registration for the day is at the clubhouse by the Bridge Street bandstand, from 10am to 11am, and 1pm to 2pm. To book email [email protected]
