This will be split between introduction and advanced - one group aimed at helping sailors take their first steps into the Laser and the other aimed at the more experienced sailors. Sailors should have RYA Start Race as a minimum.
Any participant who has not sailed a laser before is required to chat through their suitability for this training with the QM team prior to booking on. All participants need to have access to a laser and rig size suitable for their skill and the likely conditions. A maximum of 2 QM club lasers are available to hire at £15/session, this does need to be confirmed with the QM office prior to booking on.
The winter months can be challenging – in temperature as well as breeze. All participants need to be capable of sailing confidently in a moderate breeze (F4), and have the correct clothing to protect against the cooler temperatures.
