The Sun City Yacht Club teaches dinghy sailing to all ages from 8 years and older and runs regular club dinghy racing within the Two Rocks Marina and occasionally, outside the marina.
To do this, safety support and coaching is provided from one of two aluminium dinghies the club owns. These hard-sided boats often have to come alongside dinghies to assist in various ways, threatening hands and fingers when they do and because of their small size, are restricted to support within the marina.
The club is expanding along with the northern suburbs and the aluminium dinghies are approaching their useful limits. We’re desperate to obtain a Rigid Inflatable Boat (RIB) that can be used both within and outside the marina.
These soft-sided and very stable, low-to-the-water boats are ideal for coming alongside sailing dinghies and for pulling sailors out of the water when necessary and will also enable us to safely support dinghy sailing outside the marina where conditions can be much rougher and can change quickly.http://www.suncityyachtclub.com.au
