RYA Sail for Gold - Push the Boat Out day

'Push the boat out - RYA Sail for Gold 2012'    RYA
RYA’s Sail for Gold ‘Push the Boat Out’ day takes place this weekend on Saturday 21 July. There are just three more sleeps, two more days and some 60 hours to go until the event start.

Taking place just one week ahead of the start of the London 2012 sailing events in Weymouth and Portland, thousands of people and hundreds of clubs, centres and marinas across the country are all primed to take part in ‘Push the Boat Out’ day.

There are a whole host of events lined up including treasure hunts, cruises, fancy dress parades, mini Olympics and much more to celebrate and cheer on the British Sailing Team and showcase boating to the nation. ‘Push the Boat Out’ day supporters Clipper Events, Dee Caffari Racing, Neilson, Tall Ship Adventures, Endeavour Sailing, On the Water, RYA Sailability, Premier Marinas and the Ocean Youth Trust North are also geared up for the day when they will be waving flags, dressing boats and getting in to the spirit of the day.

Team GB sailor Paul Goodison commented: 'Thanks for all your amazing support for the Olympic and Paralympic sailors - it really makes a difference to know you're all behind us. Keep the good luck messages coming and have a great ‘Push the Boat Out’ day!'

If you want to get involved then check out the Sail for Gold events calendar and see what’s going on near you or you could just get out on the water with friends and family and show your support.

'It really doesn’t matter what you decide to do on the day we just want as many people as possible to take to the water and help create an amazing spectacle. Whatever you do, just have fun and don’t forget to share your photos and videos on the Sail for Gold Facebook page', commented Celia Edgington, RYA Sail for Gold co-ordinator.

All the best videos and photos posted on the Facebook page will also be used as part of a commemorative video of the day.
