Cadet Sail Training this Sunday

Published by under Cadets

Cadet Sail Training and Racing this Sunday 1st September.

Briefing; changed and rigged in the Sail Training Room at 12.00, on the water at 12.30am.

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 RULES and sailing a ISAF S-shaped course. (Postponed from last session).

The forecast is a favorable 12mph, sunny but not too hot. Great news!

Coach: Nick
