Sunday and Wednesday junior starts
An appeal to all juniors! Now you can sail, make the most of it over the summer, and join in with new improved junior racing on a Sunday and Wednesday. It’s a great opportunity to practise making your boat go where you want it to. It doesn’t have to be stressful, but it does mean you can carry on sailing once or twice a week.
The junior start will be 3 mins after the main fleets have started, over a separate short course close to the shore.
No chips, but there is usually plenty of cake.
8th July Race Training
Rigged and ready for 12.45 briefing.
Same format as last time, with a beginner group for anyone who can vaguely sail in a triangle (Jane will be in a rescue boat), and a faster group (laser/feva/topper). 1 hr coaching on the water, then a quick break before racing at 15.00.
20th July last session and Pirate Day!
Everyone (children, parents and instructors) is encouraged to find their inner pirate. Come in fancy dress / decorate the boats / be prepared to walk the plank……
A few dates for 2018
1st March - Deadline for renewals! There is a waiting list for new children, and places for returning juniors will only be held until 1st March. You don’t need an application form - it’s all online like last year.
23rd March - Briefing, boat check, perhaps an inspirational talk?
30th March - Good Friday sailing 2- 4pm
9th June - 2 Rivers Junior Series at SYC. Need lots of juniors to join in, and parents to help Jane run it!
16/17th June - Roadford camping weekend - sunshine guaranteed - just checking whether anyone reads this.
23/24th June - Exe Regatta. Again it would be great to see as many juniors as possible involved. No racing experience required, just need to be able to sail in a triangle.
