Splash Half-Term Event - 2-4 June
We have a few spaces left on the Splash Beginners Course on 2nd-4th June, so please do sign up ASAP! This is a beginners course for those new to sailing or who have sailed very little and perhaps missed out on Splash in 2020. It will cover the same skills as RYA 1-2 courses and is not aimed at those sailors who have already completed a similar course. Please register and make payment via the link at the end of this email, RSrn's Sailing Office will be managing registrations.
Info & Booking
This will be held principally in the club Optimists, and will be focussed on those Splash sailors who are new to sailing or have only done a little bit of sailing during lockdown and would like to get out on the water and learn some essential skills. No boat is required, but enthusiasm is essential!
The aim of the three days is to be introduced to the sport of sailing and to cover what you need to know to get afloat under supervision. The sailors will be guided by our fantastic qualified instructors Will and Mathias, assisted by Finlay and they will give your sailor the skills to get afloat and start enjoying the sport. We are hoping that this will be a great start to an excellent summer of junior sailing at the club, so please do get involved!
We have a minimum age of 6 to participate, and your sailor will need a wetsuit, spray top and buoyancy aid with crotch strap to hold it down in the event of a capsize. Cost for the 3 day course will be £120 per sailor. The sailors will meet each day at 9.30am, and will need a packed lunch and plenty of snacks/ water for the day, and we will be finished by 4pm. Parents will need to be available on site to help with the event, and some parental assistance in ribs and with launching will be welcomed. If your sailor can bring their own boat, please let us know via the form.
