Sailing clubs hope to attract newcomers to Brent Reservoir
Sailing clubs based at the Welsh Harp Lake on Brent Reservoir are organising an open day to give people the chance to try sailing and windsurfing on Sunday May 14.
‘Push the Boat Out’ will run from 1.30pm until 6pm and is being targeted at friends and families of club members along with the local community.
The lake is regarded as one of North London’s best kept secrets and is situated just off the North Circular in Kingsbury.
It can be accessed by driving to the end of Birchen Grove where signage will direct visitors into the club, whose postcode is NW9 8SA.
A spokesperson said: “Even if you don’t know anybody at the club you are very welcome.
“Everybody interested will be given a 20/30 minute sail with experienced sailors. A spare change of clothes, old gym shoes and a waterproof is all you need. We will supply buoyancy aids and ensure your day is safe and fun.”
There will also be a barbecue, homemade cakes and refreshments available all afternoon and anyone with further questions about the event can email honsec@wembleysailingclub.
