At long last the weather and water is warming up and Thursdays Afloat can make a welcome return to our junior programme. For those who are new, these sessions are not formal training but instead our instructors organise fun and games afloat with plenty of safety cover, so our youngsters can improve their sailing whilst having having fun and making new friends.
We aim to be ready to launch at 6pm and finish as we lose the light. Parents/guardians MUST stay on site, and there is a minimal charge for biscuits and squash. Club boats can be hired at the usual rates. Members wanting to take advantage of the safety cover and enjoy an evening sail are more than welcome.
Fast Track Tuesdays are a great way to improve your sailing skills or simply enjoy an evening cruise. Safety cover is provided and instructors and experienced sailors are on hand to give advice and instruction to those who need it. One to one tuition can be arranged or you can take part in group activities. Club boats for hire at the usual rates.
There's a Turn Up and Train session planned for the morning of Saturday 18th May from 9.30 to 12.30. It's a great way to improve your sailing with instructors on hand both ashore and afloat to offer advice and encouragement. Free to members, usual boat hire charges apply, no need to book.
An Adult Level 1 course is planned for the 1st and 2nd June, to be followed the weekend after by Level 2. There are still some places available but they're going fast. Email

RYA Race Coach Brett Cockayne is coming to the club on Saturday 22nd June to offer expert racing tips to all sailors aged 14 or over. To take part you must be able to sail a triangular course in windy conditions and must be able to recover from cpasize with miinimum assistance.
