Voile & Tango – 2023 Edition

Dear members,

We we are very excited to invite you to the 5th edition of Voile & Tango taking place on Saturday August 5th 2023.For those unfamiliar with the concept, this event is created to initiate tango community members to the wonderful world of sailing and initiate sailors to the magical world of Argentinean tango.  It makes for a happy marriage !So we are hoping you will sign-up in great numbers dear captains, so that we may invite many tangueras and tangueros to join us for an afternoon of sailing and share their passion for argentinian tango with us after a group picnic.  To kick off the evening, you are offering  an initiation to Argentinian tango and a few surprises followed by an evening of dance. The “milongas” will be sprinkled with popular music for all to enjoy.Here’s the schedule for the day :

  • Time                Activity
