It is still quite breezy – 18mph, so Cadets must be able to cope and be happy with the wind strength*.

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.   Coach: Nick

Poaching the name from the Royal Corinthian’s famous and highly prized Endeavour Trophy, we set about our own. Although after some discussion it was decided that this should be a perpetual trophy, sailed each year but for any class to offer the challenge and defend their honour against the top crews in the club. Next year we could be in Picos, Hurricanes, Lasers; whoever offers up the challenge first.

Lots were drawn for who sailed which boat at the cadet week prize giving, with an invite going to the winners of the cadet week to take part. Of course, we had to handicap our National Champions and they gracefully accepted to sail Primo – our class boat kindly sponsored by Primo Insurance.
