All participants need to be current QM club members. This coaching is aimed at developing your racing skills, although you do not need to have racing experience, you do need to be able to confidently sail either a Topper or Tera in moderate conditions (F4). Any participant who has not sailed a Topper or Tera before is required to chat through their suitability for this training with the QM team prior to booking on. For those who do not own a Topper or Tera, QM have a number of these boats available to hire at £20/day, which would need to be confirmed with the QM office prior to booking on to ensure availability.
The winter months can be challenging – in temperature as well as breeze. All participants need to be happy in sailing in the cooler temperatures and breezier conditions that is likely to be experience.
