Adult Sailing Support Sessions for Beginners at Thorpe Bay Yacht Club, Supported by the Sandhopper Fleet

We have now concluded the Adult Sailing Support Sessions for the Winter as we now have changed seasons and will be out on the water. All of the sessions were recorded and the packs are now available to download. We will be continuing our support of Beginner Adults, but will be taking a break for a couple of weeks to gather our thoughts and plans.

Please note: these sessions are not formal training. They are sharing of experiences from the Sandhopper Fleet as well as many other sailors from the Club, we are not qualified coaches. For formal training we suggest that you approach the RYA or other qualified coaches.

Below you will see the details of what subjects were covered in Q1 2022, these were recorded on Zoom (now on You tube) and the slide packs have been made available with the original links to reference material and videos used. The sound quality varies, but the packs and links in the slides should help.

Session 1

Club Induction, different boats at TBYC, Basics – Parts of a boat, Port/Starboard
