Pushing the Boat Out!
Monday 27th May 2019
Push the Boat Out is a nation-wide RYA initiative to encourage people to take part in sailing. It usually takes place in May. All the local Sailing and Yacht Clubs try to find a different day on which to hold their event. Luckily May has two bank holidays, which helps a little.
At Flushing we arrange to take people out on the water in members' yachts. Depending on numbers and conditions they may end up helming and doing proper sailing. This year the winds strengthened through the day, curtailing opportunities in the later afternoon. But all who took part returned with broad smiles.
And of course there are Cornish cream teas, with the jam and cream in the correct order.
