New Training Sessions in September on Saturdays

Those that have been attending the Tuesday night training will be aware that we will be holding 4 additional adult training sessions in September, Saturdays 11.30 until 2pm.

The sessions are designed to help non racing members take the next step from Tuesday Sailing to racing. The first session will be a skills brush up, then after that we will help you acquire the basic skills and give you the confidence to get racing.

If you are interested in attending and haven't already done so, then email Tim Burnett on info@yeadonsailingclub.co.uk

Racing members will be welcome to help and offer advice to the newer members. Plus we would welcome some additional adult support for the session on the 17th which will be run by Luke.

Tall Ships in Whitby August 20th and 21st

The Tall ship Lord Nelson, will be in Whitby on Saturday August 20th and Sunday August 21st, and she will be open to the public 10.00-12.00 and 14.00-16.00 each day. If any members of your organisation (or anyone else!) would like to visit the ship and hear more about the opportunities to sail with the Jubilee Sailing Trust, you would be very welcome. The ship will be located in Endeavour Wharf, on New Quay Road, which is near the Tourist Information Centre on the west bank of the river. There is no need to book, and there is no charge.
The ship is fully wheelchair accessible, and has many other design features to enable people with other physical disabilities to participate fully in sailing the ship. No previous sailing experience is required to sail on board, and crew members can be any age from 16 upwards (there is no upper age limit), able-bodied or physically disabled.
