It would be great to get more young sailors representing the club, whether racing or just using the facilities to have a leisurely sail down the river. From inexperienced youngsters with no boat to sail, to those with many miles under their belt, there is something for everyone! There are boats to be borrowed, and always someone around to help with rigging if anyone is unsure.
Continuing from the success of last year, ‘Lazy sailing’ takes place most weeks for those looking for a bit of fun messing around in toppers as well as other boats for some coaching and games. This is successful in teaching you the basics when the weather’s nice and the water’s calm. It is usually very popular with many young faces around, perfect for meeting new people with similar interests! There’s also both sailing and race training available to anyone as well as ‘club nights’ involving lots of young people.
There are lots to do for those with a bit more experience too; competitive races take place every weekend from the end of March through to October. Anyone of any ability is welcome to join in with the races and it would be fantastic to see as many young people involved as possible.
