Meet a Member – Our members are what make FlexiSail such a success – but who are they?
Steve and Sue Emery – Experienced Sailors
As a crew on the Hamble Lifeboat, Steve had regularly watched the FlexiSail boats sailing in and out of the Hamble River. Intrigued about what membership entailed, he got in touch. Although they are experienced sailors and have owned boats previously, Steve and Sue felt that the work, costs, and time commitment involved in owning their own boat was just too much, even though they had the skills and experience to do most of the maintenance themselves.
Being able to just turn up at the boat and go out sailing, without having to worry about any of the maintenance issues, was a great draw for them to join FlexiSail. Also, there are the many other aspects of their FlexiSail membership which they particularly enjoy including the social events, as it makes a nice change to sail in company with other members and experience other members.
“Since joining Flexisail this year, Sue & I have really enjoyed sailing Shanouda together. We are pleased we found time to join the 8 yacht trip to St. Vaast in the company of other FlexiSailors. It was fun and most enjoyable” Steve Emery
