Informal race coaching from 5th November


Our regular informal Sunday morning coaching sessions are starting again on 5th November 2017 Check the calendar each week as we rely on experienced volunteers. The idea is to create an environment where less experienced of less confident sailors can practice and develop their skills.

Any competent young & novice sailor is welcome – i.e. someone who has completed RYA Stage 3 for youth or RYA Level 2 for adults. We also welcome anyone who has not quite completed these, but feels confident with sailing in the conditions on the day.

The plan is:

9.30:  Arrive and rig a boat, so that we can get on the water by 10.

10-11: Coaching. It is not a formal RYA course. The coaching will be run by a few experienced sailors, who will provide safety cover.

11.30:  Possibility of participating in club race. The races will be run by the usual OOD/AOD/SBH team who will provide safety cover. We are looking at asking OODs to organise novice starts if there are enough people interested.

Participants use their own boats or hire club boats (double or single handed). A few points to note:

1. Responsibility for young sailors remains with their parents, who must be on site.
2. If you use a club boat please fill in a form, pay the usual fee and report any  faults
3. You will need to put away your own boat.
