Don’t stop sailing in the winter months! We have our ‘Winter Training Programme’ to keep you on the water and developing your skills until the season restarts in Spring. You could also take advantage and try something new... Dinghy Foiling, RS Aero training. This could be your year to get into club racing; if you're already on the start line maybe try team-racing.
Club Race Introductory Coaching
Club Race can be a daunting prospect for people new to the racing scene. Sailors who book onto this session will receive a briefing from one of the Safety Team on objectives for the day’s racing as well as a debrief afterwards with any coaching points noted whilst racing. This session is ideal for those sailors relatively new to club racing who would like some extra guidance in how to progress up the fleet.
