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.
