Spring Training 2014

Spring Training will commence on 16th  March for all classes, running for 5 weeks.  Lasers, Mirrors, Toppers and Lasers will be catered for.  As always we have a limited number of boats available for rental.

We will have a registration night in the Sailing Club on Wednesday 12th March @ 19:30 hrs.  As well as registering all sailors we need to ensure we have plenty of parents volunteering to help out on training days to ensure all runs smoothly and for the safety and welfare of our children.  If you cannot attend the spring training registration night please email returning the application form and leave a copy in the club bar.

Please also bring along your log books and they will be reviewed. 

On registration night we will also offer a free life jacket check for anyone who wishes to get their life jackets checked out before the start of the season.   All sizes, adults or children’s will be checked.
