Hunts Sailing Club welcomes sailors of all ages and abilities to race or cruise. We provide class racing for Solo, Enterprise, Phantom, and Laser Class dinghies, as well as an allcomers handicap. Find us in St Ives, close to Huntingdon, Cambridge and Peterborough in NW Cambridgeshire.
Graham the Club Secretary, has kindly offered to open up the clubhouse for Family Sailing on Tuesday morning 3rd April.
Sailing starts at 10am, and off the water at 12 noon.
We need a safety boat driver and crew.
Galley opening will depend on Graham’s goodwill or a volunteer stepping forward.
The Get Ready To Race course being held in April has proved very popular and has been oversubscribed. Therefore registration is now closed.
If you registered online as requested, you will be notified whether your child/ren were successful in gaining a place on Tuesday 3rd April. You will also then receive further details and be asked to pay.
Get Ready to Race is a three day training course for under 16s who want to start racing, or build on rookie experience.
The course will take place on 10th, 11th and 12th April, from 9.30am to 3.30pm each day. We do prefer that sailors come for all three days, but if space allows can take them if they can only come for one or two days. Cost will be £25 per day, plus any boat hire. Hot lunches will be available at £3.50 per child per day, but parents are expected to do a galley duty to help us cook!
This year the course will split into two groups - complete beginners who might be at Stage 2 or above, and those with a little race experience who are confident sailors. It is important that participants are keen to learn to race, and that they have well fitting full wetsuits, or drysuits, plus proper sailing boots and socks as the water is still very cold.
The course is always good fun and a great way to kick start getting into club racing. We will also look at preparing for the forthcoming Optimist open meeting the following Sunday, plus the new junior Super Series.
To register for the course you need to log in to the members only part of the website.
