JUNIOR SAILING 2020
FRIDAY EVENING e-SAILING IS HAPPENING!
Starting on Friday 17 April there will be weekly Junior e-Sailing races at 18:00, three races back-to-back. Full details are here, but you must log into the website to see them.
We've also set up a Junior Forum thread for messages and further information. Please pass messages by replying to this thread rather than starting your own, so that everyone will know where to look, and so as not to swamp the Forum index with different threads!
There are also Thursday races at 19:00, which are open to all members of SYC including Juniors. The Forum thread for these is here.
We are following government and RYA guidelines (www.rya.org.uk) about Corona virus. As you are aware these are changing by the day, and as from 16th March have made it impossible to continue with Junior sailing.
The plan therefore is to postpone until it is safe to restart.
If we can run it later in the season then we will.
We will do our best to keep everyone up to date on the website, Slack and e-mail.
Keep well and as the guides are saying
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.
A few dates for 2020
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.
27th March - Dry Session
