These sessions will be a useful mix of sailing skills and race training exercises, designed to make you a better all-round sailor across a range of wind conditions, as well as providing the skills and knowledge you need to get started in club racing if you wish. We will cover the effective use of sail controls, basic racing rules, tactics and strategy, seamanship skills such as coming alongside and man overboard, and how to understand the start and finish procedures at Hunts SC.
These sessions are open to any sailor aged 11 or over who is Stage 2/Level 2 or above provided that:
- You have a full wetsuit or drysuit, a wind proof sailing jacket and wetsuit boots or socks. No bare ankles!
- You can rig and launch your boat with minimal assistance.
- You can recover from capsize with minimal assistance.
- You will need a waterproof watch with a stopwatch or countdown facility.
These sessions may be limited to just six places and preference will be given to those signing up for all sessions. This training is £5.00 per member (£30 for the series). Club boats can be hired at the usual rates.
Timing: 9.30am - 1.00pm. 13th, 20th, 27th November, 4th, 11th December
