The City of Melbourne 'Summer Fun in the City' program hit the waters of Victoria Harbour last week.

 

Nearly one hundred people over the two days, Friday & Saturday the 9th & 10th of January, enjoyed a 90 minute session of sailing from Docklands Yacht Club.  The sun shone and the breezes were moderate, so everyone enjoyed their time on the water.  

 

Whilst many were first time sailors, some came back after last year's successful program.  And five participants came back on Sunday for our regular community sailing activity, so they must have had some fun.

 

Summer Fun staff, Jo, Matt and Sandy, supported the DYC volunteers to make sure it was a great experience for everyone.  

 

The next Summer Fun program days are on February 13 & 14.
