DOAC hope for waves of success

AN OUTDOOR activity centre that helps people from the area get in the water has announced plans to get even bigger.And the first step of Debdale Outdoor Activity Centre’s scheme is by holding an open day on Sunday, May 24.

The club, which operates at Debdale Park just over the border from Denton, attracts several people from the area to take part in windsurfing or sailing.

And this year’s event is not only being held as part of the Royal Yachting Association’s Discover Sailing programme, there is another element.

For DOAC is holding its open day in conjunction with the Paddlers for Life Manchester Dragoneers Dragonboat team.

The centre is also offering adults the chance to get either out or back on the water after opening up its adult club on Saturday afternoons from 1pm until 4pm.

People wanting to take part must be over 18 years of age but must also have passed their RYA sailing level one certificate.

Members of DOAC will also soon start pre-season training as they look to defend their RYA T15 Interclub North West windsurfing title they won last year.

Clubs from all over the area compete in events over the summer and the Debdale Diamonds came out on top in 2019 – now preparations for 2020’s season, which starts on May 3 at West Kirby, are underway.

DOAC is looking for businesses that want to get involved and make the open day their biggest event yet!

Anyone interested can contact the centre’s commodore, Nicola Stockdale, at nicolalstockdale@gmail.com
