Autumn Race Training
November Saturdays 2nd, 9th (provisional), 16th, 23rd, 30th, 9.30am to 12.30pm
Free to members!
Mixed ability race training for all members aged 14 or over who are able to rig their boats, recover from capsize with minimal assistance and sail a triangular course with an upwind leg. Club boats are available to hire at the usual rates.
This training will equip you to start taking part in club racing or help you build your skills to help you sail faster and improve your knowledge. As well as on the water practice for starting, mark rounding and boat handling the training will cover basic rules and how to develop boat speed, as well as basic tactics and strategy.
You don't need to come to all of them, in fact you can come to as many sessions as you like. You don’t need to book, but it does help if we have an idea of numbers so please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you intend to come and which dates.
Saturday afternoon short course racing for all comers
1.30 - 3.00pm November Saturdays 2nd, 16th, 23rd, 30th.
We are wondering if there would be any interest in a Saturday afternoon race series in November? Racing would be for all comers, using windward leeward courses, partly for simplicity but largely to encourage use of the club double handers, so the asymmetrics have a course that suits them. Races would be one start, around 25 to 30 minutes long and run back to back. Results would be calculated later and posted on the website and Facebook, to aid a quick pack up.
This is not coached racing (although we can check spinnaker rigging if needed) but is intended to suit all abilities and classes.
Obviously we only want to do this if there is interest, and we would need help with a safety boat. If you are keen and really will turn up please let us know by emailing email@example.com. We will also put a sign up sheet in the club. Six boats makes it worth doing. Perfect for those staying on after race training.
