The optimist beginner sailing sessions will start on Saturday 5th April at 11am in the Dinghy Centre.
As usual the format will be a “no pressure” introduction for new sailors to optimist sailing and some confidence building for those wishing to improve. Help will be provided for parents and sailors new to the scene.
I would request that all interested parties email Darren O’Keefe in advance on [email protected] to provide some indication of numbers. This is suitable for Children from age 6 upwards who are new to Optimist sailing.
Volunteer helpers are also required, both adult and older junior sailors. Volunteers are key to the success of the beginner sessions. Of particular help are optimist sailors who are willing to take the beginners out in their boats. The beginners sailing will be finished before regular April Saturday league racing that follows later in the afternoon. This racing will will commence on Saturday 12th April for Gold, Silver & Bronze Sailors and in May for the Copper Sailors. We will be delighted to see those in the Blue group moving into the Copper Fleet racing in May.
If you have any questions about the beginners sessions in the meantime drop an email to Darren at [email protected]
