We operate two groups on a Saturday morning and race training on a Friday night. For beginners and improvers, both sessions are from 9,30 until 12,30 and are suitable for all ages of 8 and upwards. We run the groups regardless of the weather and have a selection of onshore sailing related activities for poor weather weeks.
Friday Race Training
Friday 6pm till water close. Using your own or a club boat to participate in the intermediate sailing group focusing on improving skills and the introduction of racing. A reasonable level of sailing is required, being able to sail from point A to point B is essential. The BBQ is lit every Friday and the bar open, bring your own food.
The Beginner group is all about being out on the water, getting used to the environment and having lots of fun. This session will normally involve a experienced sailor in each boat but basic understanding of sailing is required.
RYA stage 1 required
The Intermediate group is a much more focused session where the group as a whole is looking to consolidate and improve their sailing skills following the RYA scheme in their own or club boats.
All participants should be stage 2 or above.
