      I do not know if many have seen this yet, but what a great idea!

      I know that it is early but one for the 2012 calender?

      Excerpt from the RYA website
      ‘Push the Boat Out’ day 21 July 2012
      Let’s get as many boats as we can out on the water on ‘Push the Boat Out’ day and create an amazing spectacle!

      Showcase our wonderful sport to the nation.
      The RYA ‘Push the Boat Out’ day will be a fantastic opportunity to showcase sailing to the nation and show our support to our Olympic and Paralympic sailors prior to the London 2012 Games. It’s a great way to have fun on and off the water. Dress your club, centre or marina and your boats with bunting and make a real occasion of it.

      Wish the British Sailing Team ‘Good Luck’!
      ‘Push the Boat Out’ day is the Saturday before the start of the London 2012 Games and it would be great to give the British Sailing Team a wonderful send off, waving flags and wishing them ‘good luck’ on ‘Push the Boat Out’ day.

      What will you do on ‘Push the Boat Out’ day?
      Events on the water could include cruiser rallies, treasure hunts, dinghy pursuit races, a club sail past and so on. Just encourage as many of your club members as possible to get out on the water on Saturday 21 July. It will certainly be a day to remember!

      We will email all the Sail for Gold Activators an event pack full of ideas and suggestions for the day to download shortly. This will also be available on our website.

      Sail for Gold balls and parties
      To finish the day off why not hold your own Sail for Gold ball or party at your club or training centre? It could be your own club Sail for Gold black tie ball, a gold themed BBQ, hog roast, disco, the list is endless.

      National and local press coverage
      We are planning to have national and local media coverage for what promises to be a fantastic day with boats covering the water around our coast, rivers, lakes and canals. Why not tell us what you are planning and we can help you publicise your event on our Sail for Gold website? There will be an online form available on our website soon. Just complete the form and your ‘Push the Boat Out’ event will be included on our Sail For Gold map of events being held around the UK.

      RYA resources
      The RYA will be providing resources and materials to help you make the most of your events. The Sail for Gold kits will be sent out to all clubs, training centres and marinas who sign up to the Sail for Gold programme. The online event packs will be available soon.
