Approximately once a month, we intend to hold "Introduction to Racing" sessions in place of the usual 11:00 am Sunday Race. These should be fun, informal coaching events, with no pressure, giving the opportunity to try activities which support our racing and will give the participant a fuller experience of racing, enhancing racing skill, rather than just competing. We are hoping the sailors "will have a go" at some of the following: Safety Boat Refresher, VHF Operation, Race Course Design, Committee Boat operation, Flags, Signals, Race Start Procedure and Calculation of Results using handicap system.
Many of us enjoy our racing, but sometimes feel a little unconfident to volunteer for duties. These fun events will show how everything is done and hopefully how easy it is with a little help. The next step would be to help with a race support activity and start building experience. We won't throw you in at the deep end! Why not give it a try, should also be good for new members to get to know the racing sailors.
This event encompases the following:
- Start Racing : 14 April, 11:00 - 12:15
- Start Racing : 5 May, 11:00 - 12:15
- Start Racing : 2 June, 11:00 - 12:15
- Start Racing : 7 July, 11:00 - 12:15
- Start Racing : 1 September, 11:00 - 12:15
