Practice Sailing sessions are open to all and are intended to encourage a bit of practice, informal training or just a pootle about for fun. There will be a Patrol Boat on the water. Each session will be subject to a minimum of three dinghies, a wind strength of F4 or below and sufficient volunteers to run it.
This year Practice Sailing begins on Tuesday 2 June then Saturday 6 June. The sessions are generally from 18:30 to 20.00 on Tuesday evenings and from 10.00 to 12.00 on Saturday mornings until the end of August. Precise dates and times are published in the Programme. For more detail go to the website Practice Sailing page. The Club Boats page may also be relevant.
This is a "self-help" activity; those who make use of it will, naturally, want to help run it occasionally. Volunteers are required to act as coordinators, patrol boat crew and tractor drivers for each day. To volunteer, go to the Duty Roster, scroll to the appropriate day and click on the appropriate Volunteer button.
Cadet Practice Sailing
On some Saturday mornings, dedicated Cadet Practice Sailing sessions are available. If there is a number of Cadets that are sailing then a dedicated Patrol Boat will be launched to supervise. To ensure the appropriate personnel are available, please inform the club that you (or your child) intend to attend by booking a place on WebCollect. There is no charge for these sessions.
Please remember that < 11 year old Cadets must have a Responsible Adult on-site at all times.
