Bait and cast

The Tin Can Bay Fishing Club will be hosting its first Sunfish Junior Fishing Day at Tin Can Bay on January 14, 2018, and juniors from 7-15 years are welcome to register for this training opportunity to learn about recreational fishing.

Qualified instructors will teach the juniors how to tie knots, rig a rod, baiting and casting the line. Parents are also welcome to attend and everyone will enjoy a complimentary morning tea and a BBQ lunch

These events attract many applicants and numbers for the Sunfish Junior Fishing Day are strictly limited. To register, please contact the secretary on 0437 242 171 or email tcbfishingclub@bigpond.com

Sail away

Sailing lessons start January 15 to 18, 2018. This is a four-day ‘Learn to sail course’, that follows on from the September event teaching basic sailing techniques and sailing rules.

After a safety briefing and the introduction to boat parts, knots and steering instructions, everyone gets on the water to have a go at paddling a sailing dinghy. It is not as easy as you think!

Next, everyone goes on the Status (19 foot T/S) our biggest training vessel. Then three days continue with honing skills on and off the water.

After this event all juniors will be encouraged to keep up the skills learnt and go on to better sailing techniques, throughout the summer sailing season at the Green Fleet sailing on Saturdays.

Any member of the public who would like to try sailing, please ask on a Saturday at the Green Fleet session. If there is any interest we can run an ‘Adults Learn to Sail course’ during February – March.
