Try Out Day 10.5.2014

Try Out Day was a succes

Over 100 visitors came to hear about Audi HSS Sailing Center and to try our boats for free.

Audi HSS Sailing Center arranged a Try Out Day in cooperation with Skiffer Liuskaluoto restaurant on Saturday May 10th. For beginners and sailors alike, participants didn’t need any previous sailing experience to join. This was a great opportunity to get to know about basic courses, fleet and match race trainings and other activities at Sailing Center.

The Try Out day started with a thick fog, which luckily turned into sunshine around 14 in the afternoon. The day was a success and about 100 people got a chance to try sailing, many for the very first time. All classes of the Sailing Center were out – SM40, Elliott 6m, 606 and Laser 16. The wind was very easy in the morning and afternoon, only 3 m/s. All participants had the chance to enjoy the after sail at Skiffer Liuskaluoto restaurant with special Try-out day treatment and prices.

The camera crew of Merimaili was filming the Try Out Day and interviewed Sailing Center members and the Try Out Day participants on board and on shore for their TV-episode about boating and on water sports. The first screening is shown on JIM on Saturday May 17th at 08:20 and a rerun on Sunday May 18th at 08:20. You can find the series from last summer at ruutu.fi where this summer’s series will be repeated also.

This was the third year when Sailing Center organized the test day, and judging from the smiles on the faces, this tradition will continue also next year. Huge thanks to the skippers and on shore volunteer organizers!
