Two Special Saturday Clubs

  • I am very pleased to tell you that there will be two special Saturday Clubs coming up this year, supported by RYA coaches.  The RYA aim is to help more people sail more often so we are planning to concentrate on those skills that are very helpful in getting you out (and back!) especially in stronger winds.
  • This Saturday 8th June the focus will be on boat control when leaving and returning to the pontoons, and also on gybing especially in stronger winds.  For this session we will have one of the QM team, most likely Freddie.
  • On Saturday 3rd August the focus will be on sail setting to control power, especially in stronger winds, and on further developing boat control, such as sailing slowly, stopping and starting again.  For this session we have Tim Anderton.
  • If there are any other topics you would like our coaches to cover then please let me know and we will see if we can include them in these or subsequent sessions.
  • We hope to have a big turn out for both days so very important that if you are a select member you plan what boat you would like to sail and book it through the office.  Members with their own boats, with crews or looking for crews, are of course very welcome as always.  
  • For the first of these days this coming Saturday, the weather forecast is for 20C and F3-4 which should be ideal.  Meet as usual from 9:45 (not changed) and we will aim to start the session with a land drill soon after 10:00, get afloat after that and be back ashore around 12:30.  Do stay on for lunch together if you can.  It will be helpful if you can let me know in advance that you are planning to come but as always you can also just turn up on the day.

 

  • See you on the water soon!
