Imperial Yacht Club (The Family Sailing Club) will be celebrating 105 years of sailing with an Open Day at Zandvlei, Lakeside on Sunday 9 October 2011, from 10h00 to 17h00.

Come and experience the joys of sailing first-hand, and see why it is the coolest outdoor sport ever, providing young sailors with the opportunity to learn important lifeskills, and to make great new friends,  in a healthy environment.   

All would-be sailors, young and old, and their families are invited to come and join in our festivities, which will include fun-filled activities such as sailboat races and sailing demonstrations by young Optimist and Dabchick sailors, rides on the club’s dinghies, and a Pirate’s Treasure Hunt on the vlei.  For the little people there will be a water slide and jumping castle, and various games.

The club’s galley will be open and will be serving a selection of light meals and snacks. 

For any enquiries or for further details of the day’s events you may contact us on, or via our website,  or you may contact Damian Gibbs (Secretary) at 082 788 9000 or Mark Sher (PR & Marketing) at 083 303 1000
