TRY SAILING FOR FREE AT BARTLEY SC!
Bartley Sailing Club invites you and your family to come and try sailing for FREE at the club’s Open Day this Saturday (17August).
This fun-filled afternoon at this friendly club in the Bartley Green area of Birmingham runs from 10am to 4.30pm and is guaranteed to offer something for everyone.
Get a first taste of sailing with one of the club’s experienced members, chat to some of the club sailors or simply sample the social side of what life at Bartley SC can offer.
Just bring along a change of clothes, some old trainers and waterproofs and the club will supply everything else you need to get afloat. Refreshments will be available throughout the day with a BBQ at lunchtime.
It’s been a big week for Bartley SC who are also celebrating after being awarded £45,000 in the latest round of Sport England Inspired Facilities funding to improve the club’s changing facilities.
