NEW for 2014: Training before Wednesday evening racing

We are planning informal mutual coaching/training sessions on Wednesdays through the summer, from about 4.00 pm i.e. before the Wednesday Evening race. Opportunity for less experienced sailors and Youth sailors to talk to the more experienced and do some on the water training. If enough people come down we’d like to try “Buddy Racing” where teams of 2  (the most experienced teamed with the least experienced,)  have to race round a course, and finish next to each other! (The idea that the more experienced sailor will coach the less experienced one- could go the other way round though I suppose!)

Saturday 3 November 2012 – Practice Session

Our next Fleet Practice Session will take place on Saturday 3 November 2012.

These are our informal self run practice sessions where we can work together on practice drills, pair tuning, mark roundings etc.

If you’re planning to come to the club that day please post a reply to this topic so that others can see who else will be there and it might motivate them to come along as well!

Saturday 1 September 2012 – Practice Session

This Saturday is the first Saturday of the month and sees the first of our Fleet Practice Sessions.

These are our informal self run practice sessions where we can work together on practice drills, pair tuning, mark roundings etc. We’ll meet up first and have a quick chat about what people want to focus on. As it’s difficult to communicate out on the water we’ll run through the drills on land first before launching.

It would be really useful to get an idea of how many of you will be there so please let me know at if you’re coming. The start time is 10am, meet in the boat park. Also if you want to come but can’t make 10am then please still get in touch, if it suits more people to make it a later time then that would be possible as long as I know beforehand. If you’re at the front of the fleet it would be great to see you as well especially if you’re prepared to help those of us behind you!
