Try out day was a success

About 100 people participated in the Try Out Day of Audi HSS Sailing Center.

The Try Out day started on Saturday May 11th with a thick fog, which luckily turned into brilliant sunshine around 11 in the morning. 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, i.e. SM40’s, Elliott 6m’s, 606’s and Laser 16’s. The wind was very easy in the morning, but built up closer to 10 m/s in the afternoon. Two try out participants got to experience the rougher side of sailing when one of the Laser 16’s capsized. The two unfortunate ones were however picked up from the freezing water very fast and were sped to sauna and shower to warm up.

This was the second year when Sailing Center organised 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 organisers!
