Informal Training

Friday Evening Informal Sailing

IMG_6282mL

As suggested in the title the “Friday Nighters” meet on a Friday night starting from 18:00hrs with boat rigging and shore-side preparation. The group normally gets afloat at around 18:30hrs.

 It is an opportunity to dinghy sail without racing with safety cover provided, unlike previous years instruction will be given but there will be support from other attendees.  Safety cover is provided by other volunteer members with the relevant qualification but is also an opportunity to get out on a rib safety boat and improve your skills.

 Likewise with enough volunteers practise on using the displacement boat ‘Bellis’ is available. Members who would like a refresher before undertaking a club duty are encouraged to come along.

Sessions are dependent on sufficient support volunteer members so if you are able to help or want to sail please contact the office.

Those attending normally eat as a group in the galley after sailing. Please let the galley know your order before going afloat.

These sessions are free to members and non members are welcome to come and give sailing a try for a fee of £5 per session for a maximum of six sessions after which time if you are interested in continuing we ask that you become a member of the club.

See the training schedule below and the registration form – new attendees are welcome on any evening.
