HSC Sail Training Weekend 1st & 2nd June 2019

Six  adults and five children attended HSC’s first formal sail training sessions this weekend which were based on the RYA syllabus. 

What glorious sunny & warm weather we had!  Saturday was marked by light breezes with Sunday starting with more moderate winds, developing into fresh sailing conditions by the end of the day – a perfect way to progress sailing skills.  There was a mixture of classroom sessions and land based drills followed by lots of boat handling experience on the water all under the guidance of our experienced RYA qualified trainers Ben, John and Duncan.  The Juniors also had great fun perfecting their capsize and boat recovery drill!  

Delicious lunches were provided from our galley team and great fun was had by all.  Thanks to all those that attended, our instructors and to all our members that helped with the event.
