Open Day 2018 Report

RYA Push the Boat Out 2018- Club Open Day

The Club Open Day took place on Saturday the 12th May and was a great success with 217 visitors to the club. There were 168 taster sails organised in GP14`s and Stratos and by a great team of Cadet volunteers. There were a large number of family groups with a majority of the youngsters in the age range of 5 to 8 but also a number of adults who wanted to get back to dinghy sailing. We had a Tera demonstration, Sailability training and taster sails, a plastic bottle race, Ice Creams, an excellent boat display including the Model Yacht Group and even two pairs of geese with cute little goslings. Everything we could have asked for. To all of our guests and visitors we do hope that you had a great day. Please do not hesitate to make contact through the website and the appropriate team member will be delighted to assist you with your query.

For those of you who are interested in these things the majority of visitors were from the Farnham and Hindhead/Haslemere area with some visiting from Chessington, Sandhurst and Alton with the majority of attendees reporting that they heard about the Open Day by word of mouth by club members and others.  A full analysis of data obtained will be fed into planning for 2019 and then, with the new privacy laws, data will be destroyed.

My thanks to all the helpers who did a fantastic job. You are too numerous to name check but you all know who you are! Special mention to Neil and Catharine Holden for an excellent BBQ; to Caroline and her team in the galley; to Julian who assisted a dozen families to start the process of joining; to Nigel, Barbara, Kate and Wendy who ran the Welcome desk so efficiently and to Megan who ran the taster sails with a brilliant team of helpers some of whom were new members. Special mention for Mark Walker and Fiona Goult for managing the youth taster sails. And to repeat my thanks to you all - I was astonished at how the clear up took place after 2.00 - this just happened, things were put away and tided up with the minimum of fuss and drama. Truly a great Frensham team

We have a small number of Frensham Pond Sailing Club embroidered Polo shirts still available. Please contact me or Wendy.
