Cadet Training and Races this Sunday

Published by under Cadets

Cadet Sail Training and Racing on Sunday 30th June.

Briefing; changed and rigged in the Sail Training Room at 9.30am, on the water at 10.00am.

This session is aimed at all abilities and will help our young sailors make progress with their sailing, racing and boost their confidence on the water. Participating Cadets should be able to beat, reach and run, at least at a basic level, and be able to sail to and from the training area.

We will be thinking about the RYA’s ‘Five essentials’: Balance, Boat trim, Sail setting, Centreboard/Daggerboard, Course made good.

Coach: Nick

Cadet sailing Sunday, Meeting Friday

Published by under Cadets

Dear Cadets and Parents,

I am calling for a Sailor’s Meeting this Friday – Sail Training Room (21 June 2019),
hopefully at 7 pm if not then wait for me, it might be 7:30pm.
Topic is Upwind Sailing, still.

There is Cadet Race Training run by me this Sunday, 23/06/2019, start on the water at 16:00.
Briefing is at the Sail Training Room at 15:30 – optional
I recommend that sailors come to the briefing already changed and get their boats ready before.
Depending on the conditions the focus will be upwind sailing and tacking again.
Last time the wind was so light and variable, it was impossible to get a good feel of these.

See you soon:
Kind regards: Andras

Please, let me know, it is helpful to know who is coming for each.

Please, ask your sailors to look at the YouTube Channel “TBYCPicofleet”
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCNqoiF-KEcV5JfabPj4K6kA/videos

I recommend looking at my latest: “Upwind – basics”
I attached the pdf sheet – they may want to use to work out the length of different routes to the upwind mark as I recommended.

Sailors – you may consider looking at other videos: “Briefing for training 09/06/2019”, as we will try these drills again.
If you fancy getting some experience with man overboard training, you may also wish to see “come to coachboat”.
Approaching the person / or dummy to be saved should also be done from “below the wind”, there are many similarities.
The video “Top tips for Cadet Regatta, June 2019” may be helpful for the race.
There is nothing stopping you to look at the older videos, you may find them useful.
I am pleased to see the increasing number of subscribers, it is approaching 1 million, only 999 986 short of that.
