The following Sail Training courses are programmed for 2017.
- Stage 2 in April
- Stage 1 in May
- Stage 1 in July
- Stage 3 in September
Stage 1. Cadets must be 8 years of age at the start of any stage. Cadets aged 8 – 11 start off in the Club Oppies. From age 12+ and adults in Picos. Stage 2 + 3 all learn in Picos.
The Stage 2 course in April is open to any adult and cadet who have already completed their Stage 1 and who are reasonably competent in helming a Pico around a triangular course.
All Stage 2 entrants who have not raced before will be required to helm in one of the Pico Spring Series races or a normal club race to cover the racing part of this course.
The Stage 3 course in September is open to any adult and cadet who have already completed their Stage 2 and have continued to improve their skills. Although possible to complete Stage 2 and Stage 3 in the same year, it is felt that doing one course per year is best.
It is not necessary to have your own Pico although if you do, this will ensure you are on the course.
The Club has 3 Picos for Sail Training so space is very limited to those members who do not own a Pico.
There is no charge for the Sail Training Courses and Log Books.
Available spaces for each course are calculated on available instructors.
However all entrants are required to turn up on all the days of the course including the briefing. If you are unable to make all the required dates, it would be appropriate to allocate your space to another member on the waiting list.
