Club Training


In 2019 four structured training sessions have been included in the programme to help beginners and new sailors improve their sailing and gain the skills and confidence to be able to join in with the racing.

Club members are more than welcome to join in the sessions in their own, or club boats. At each session there will be the opportunity for some newer member to sail with an experienced sailor / mentor in a club Vision. The mentor will stay in the boat with you so will be able to demonstrate techniques or give coaching.

Training Session Dates 2019

  1. Training Session 1 – Monday 20/05/2019 at 19:00
  2. Training Session 2 – Saturday 08/06/2019 at 10:00
  3. Training Session 3 – Wednesday 03/07/2019 at 19:00
  4. Training Session 4 – Tuesday 16/07/2018 at 19:00

Try to arrive at least 1hr (1hr 30mins if possible) before the scheduled start time to allow sufficient rigging and briefing time. The intention is for the first 2 sessions to focus on tacking and gybing techniques; the 3rd on how to sail a triangular course; and practice racing in session 4. This schedule may change due to the weather conditions.

If you are planning to attend one or more of the training sessions it would be helpful if you could contact James Willcocks ( or Christine Slater indicating which session(s) you can attend in advance to enable us to plan the sessions.


These are intended to encourage our novices and young sailors into the world of racing in a fun and relaxed manner. This will also be a great opportunity to set your sights on the prizes which will be on offer, including best novice helm and the best novice crew.
