Skills & Advice Sessions - 2 hour modules
Theory and dry land drills/practical sessions.
Available to members only. No prior experience necessary.
The modules run prior to racing at the club, so that participants can then practice during races or during cruises if they wish.
These modules are a mixture of advice sessions by club members and sessions run by RYA qualified and other external expert coaches. They are aimed at helping sailors further improve their sailing skills by concentrating on specifics during short 2 hour sessions. In some cases they will have a particular emphasis on racing and mostly, will have a bias towards sailing in tidal waters.
All modules differ. Options for participants will include sessions using stern main-sheet Enterprises, centre main-sheet RS Visions or single handed Lasers. All modules last for a minimum of two hours.
