Learn to sail

News YSC News and events

Friday, 25 April 2008


In our research towards the Future of YSC a number of members have commented how they would like to be able to practice their sailing skills or even just have a leisurely sail, at times outside of the scheduled racing, but with the comfort of having safety boat cover too.

Neil and his team do a fantastic job in running the training sessions, but up to now we have never provided a clearly defined session for those who desire the freedom to simply sail their boats without formality.

We would like to change this and so from Saturday 17th May we will commence a pilot for up to 6 months and provide safety boat cover on the water from 12.00 to allow a 2 hour slot for the freedom to sail prior to racing as usual.

This will not affect the Junior training course in any way.

It does mean that the OOD and AOOD will have to set up earlier, so would you all consider your dates and if you cannot meet this commitment please arrange for a swap of cover or approach a committee member who will try to help.

I do believe that this development will in time, attract a whole new element of member sailing enthusiasts and hopefully will encourage the many unloved and unsailed boats in the dinghy park to be seen on the water.

Thank you for your help with this new venture.
