Happy New Year, I hope everyone is looking forward to some good sailing in 2023.  Just a few notices about Junior sailing in 2023.  

 

1) Junior Winter Training – Sat 7th Jan

Open to all Junior sailors who can sail a triangular course. All children must wear a drysuit or winter wetsuit.   

Please book via eventbrite, club boats are available to hire.

9am start and please bring your own lunch.  Parents please be prepared to help with setting up for the day and some will need to be in safety boats.  Finish will be around 3.30pm but Juniors are welcome to only do the morning session. 

 

Please be aware the current forecast is 19 gusting 30 knots so it may only be suitable for more experienced sailors.  We hope to have some shore based training / activities if the conditions do not allow us to go on the water.  

 

2) Winter Working Party – Sun 8th, 15th, 22nd, 29th January and 5th February 10-12 midday

All club members must attend 2 of these as part of their membership.  Please can as many as possible come to help with maintenance in the Junior section. 

 

3) Membership Renewal

All members should have received an email with information about renewals.  To guarantee your Junior place please renew by the end of Jan.  There is also a discount in membership fees if you renew by the end of Jan.  

 

4) Outgrown sailing stuff 

Please bring any outgrown sailing kit to the club to sell on, all funds go to Juniors and it’s great for sustainability.

 

Any questions please do email me.  

 

Thanks
