The Improver Sail Days were due to start this weekend but the majority of improvers and instructors are not available due to various family and work commitments.
As a result the Improver Sails will start on Saturday 19th July 2014 at 1100 hours – bring a packed lunch.
The days will cover the basic elements of the RYA Level 1 & 2 Dinghy Courses with the addition of spinnaker work, rigging demonstrations/advice and race training. The intention is to provide less experience HSC members the opportunity to develop their sailing skills over several weekends in a safe and relaxed environment leading up to the Youth, Ladies & Newcomers Regatta on Saturday 30th August 2014.
I have had a lot on interest in the days from members and it is something we haven’t tried for many years.
The days will be delivered by experienced race helms from HSC. We will also have RYA instructors as guest trainers on some of the days.
I have negotiated discounted RYA Level 1 & 2 Courses for HSC at Thames Young Mariners which I will discuss and promote on the first Improver Sail Day.
All the dates are in the club programme so if you would like to take up this great opportunity of free tuition please let me know the dates you can attend ASAP so that I can make sure I have enough helpers.
I look forward to your replies.
