Although it was not possible to race on Sunday, members were able to complete the Royal Yacht Association Level 3 course on Saturday.
Some of the training was “virtual” but with experienced sailors on hand to guide very effective. It takes style and technique to capsize on the beach, but John and Steve did their very best to deliver.
Training lead to a presentation ceremony, President Mike Adams doing the honours to the 100% successful candidates.
Mike and Geof Padgham, supported by the rib crew helmed by Steve Cole and assisted by Simon delivered sailing experiences on the catamarins to members of the public trying out sailing for the first time. Strong winds and a choppy sea certainly added to the exhilaration enjoyed by all who took part.
Want to try, pop in when the flags flying and you will have a warm welcome.
