The Club has for many years run an annual program to provide an opportunity for local children to sail. The focus is to introduce the juniors to the safe use of small sailing craft using our fleet of Blue Peter, Topper and more advanced dinghies.
As juniors progress, we start basic race activities and use experienced helmsmen within the club and visiting national coaches for intensive training weekends.
We have new entrants for each year's program and we now have a group of juniors who represent the club at Topper and Laser Travellers, National and International events.
We also have juniors who have progressed to the National Sailing Squad training program. These successful outcomes are remarkable for a Club of our size and reflect the enormous efforts of club members in the sailing program and fund raising activities to achieve this.
For the 2008 season, Family sailing sessions will resume on Saturdays at 11am, following the opening muster on 19th April.
We are planning to run sailing sessions for Senior, Intermediate and Beginner cadets on weekday afternoons after this - specific days and times will be announced once we have an idea of numbers of sailors and helpers !
