Topper and Laser training day
On Saturday 24th May we will be running a race training day for the Lasers and Toppers (or anything similar.. RS Tera etc). All abilities are welcome as we will work in a few groups to match levels and make sure everyone gets help and support.
Both onshore and on the water we will cover boat setup, technique for boat speed, starting, boat to boat tactics and course tactics.
If you’re a regular open meeting attendee or have just begun joining in with club racing, or anything in the middle, there will be something in it for all of you.
Timings will follow on Tuesday when we can see the forecast but we will start approximately mid-morning and run through into the afternoon with a BBQ to finish if the weather permits!
There is no fee or limit on numbers but if you are interested it would be a great help if you could email email@example.com so we have a rough idea in advance. Cadets amongst you can also tell Grace.
Cob and pen ride – 13th June
You will need to order and pay for your buffet this Friday (23rd May). We have to pay upfront for this so please bring some money with you.
