Six adults took part in the Clubs first training course for beginners using a combination of club and members boats over a period of four half days on two consecutive weekends. This period enabled racing to continue as normal and to take advantage of varying wind conditions so they had maximum time on the water. Our six adults can now come and use club boats on Wednesday evenings or join in Sunday racing as they can independently rig the club boats and control the dinghy on all points of sailing. On the last afternoon they undertook a follow my leader exercise followed by a short race. The leading boats had two metres distance apart at the finish line and screams of excitement were heard when the bell was rung. One happy novice responded ,” I would like to say thank you to Janice, Neil, Mike and Denis who made the course both totally accessible to all of us and also huge fun. We have all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and are very grateful to all the time you have given up for us.”
We look forward to seeing our new members joining in Wednesday and Sunday activities from now on.
