Sailors are coached on Mirror dinghies (2 in a boat), and ultimately learn to sail a marked course. The Club also has Lasers and Minnows if it is appropriate for the trainee. Sailors must be able to swim 25m unassisted. We welcome the assistance of all family members. For example, parents or partners may like to help as a support boat driver, with junior training, or in the canteen.
