Youth Friday Evening Training: Sailing Knots and Rules

Event Details

These Friday evening courses have been set up to help the Youth Squad improve all elements of their sailing and to provide the confidence for them to get involved in the Saturday Youth Racing Series and also to progress onto Sunday Racing if they so wish.

To take part the Youth Sailor should be at a point where they have achieved or are in the process of taking their RYA Stage 3

These evening training sessions are free of charge and as from early June we would also invite families to come and sizzle the odd sausage on the BBQ while the training is going on. The Bar will be open.

Keep an eye on the Website Diary as there will also be training opportunities for adults as well.
