"I saw the Ladies Who Launch on 'i will if you will ' in 2015 and thought I would come along and give it a try. I have found everyone so friendly and welcoming at the sailing club and I really look forward to our Thursday evenings on the water each week, during the summer . The Ladies Who Launch are a lovely fun group to learn to sail with"
