The Sunday morning training fleet has just resumed on Sunday 30th January 2022.

Bronze Fleet:
Sailors who have completed the Learn to Sail course, or have previous comparable sailing experience can join the Bronze Fleet. It is run alongside the Sunday morning Learn to Sail Fleet and prepares sailors for racing conditions, as well as more advanced skills.

Bronze Fleet sailors may be invited to join the Silver Fleet after demonstrating the skills and competency necessary for racing. Please email us or speak to the coaches on Sunday morning for more information.

Training Boat Classes:

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.  Go to the Boat Classes tab to read more on these boats.

 

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.
