Yacht club bosses are set to float a 45 meter pontoon off Canvey Point.
Island Yacht Club secretary, Valerie Deane said the move was aimed at promoting dingy sailing for youngsters on the island. She called on wannabe sailors to join to the club. “Sailing is a wonderful healthy activity. It teaches people to become self-reliant and have a healthy respect for the sea,” she said.
Training days are available with instruction given in Royal Yachting Association courses.
Anyone interested should visit the club at weekends when members are always available for advice.
