Pico Race Training rescheduled for tomorrow (Sunday), proposed meeting at 15:30

Published by at 6:31 pm under Cadets,Pico's

Dear Cadets and Parents,

We are doing the training with Nick tomorrow, as it was too windy today. We plan to meet at 15:30 just to change and rig and get going. Launch the boats at 16:30, before the club race. Lewis volunteered to escort us with his RIB. We did the classroom discussion this afternoon. We had 12 cadets on the theory session. Tomorrow the forecast suggests more pleasant wind. I hope you all could join in.

See you on the water:



– Change, and rig the boats straight away
– We will set a triangular course on the water near club mark 3.
– Cadets leave beach at 16.30
– Sailors sail straight to the start line.
– Warm up: figure of 8 around the start line
– Tacking on the whistle towards the windward mark
– One lap of the course, concentrating on sail position/trim (include 5 essentials as appropriate). RIB is going to support sailors with advice.
– Three 2 lap races, small triangular course.
– De-briefing 18.15 – 18.30 Sail Training Room
