SATURDAY AFTERNOON SAILING
Beginning on Saturday 7th May at 14.00hrs, Club members will be continuing a series of informal sail training sessions. All new members, junior members and members new to sailing will be very welcome to attend these sessions, so why not come along.
We are confident that you will have an enjoyable time.
Please take a look at the club’s annual programme as we have already organised some other events on Saturdays during June and July.
During these sessions it is the intention to look at the following areas:-
How to rig a dinghy, what goes where and why!
Launching and recovery of boats.
The points of sailing, beating to windward, reaching and running before the wind.
Aspects of boat handling under sail.
Confidence building, sailing in different conditions.
Capsize drill. (In the summer)!
Informal fun races, with water pistols!
Trips through a lock.
Elementary rules discussions.
If you don’t own a boat yet, it’s not a problem; as we will be using the club’s Wayfarer, as well as member's boats.
All club members are invited to come down to the club on these Saturdays for fun sailing, it would be great to see you all!
