Optimist Flotilla at Datchet Water Sailing Club
DWSC’s Optimist Flotilla makes the most of the excellent facilities and sailing water available at Queen Mother Reservoir. Flotilla activities mostly take place on Sunday mornings. The plan is to have activities for beginners (and those with a couple of week’s experience) and more experienced racers. The emphasis will be on regular sailing in a relatively informal environment. The Optimist Flotilla is open the DWSC Cadet members, who have their own Optimist.
Beginners Group – Coaching takes place on Sunday mornings at 9:30am until 1:30pm on the dates below. While it will be beneficial for sailors to attend all sessons, the programme will be flexible enough to allow sailors to miss some sessions. A parent or agreed guardian must remain on site during the sessions.
Improved Group (Regatta Fleet – inexperienced racers) Coaching takes place on Sunday mornings at 9.30 am until 1 pm on the dates below. There will be 8 places unless there is enough demand for another 6 places. While it will be beneficial for sailors to attend all sessions, the programme will be flexible enough to allow sailors to miss some sessions. Sailors will be required to have their own Optimist and a parent or agreed guardian must remain on the premises during the sessions. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
Advanced Group (Zone Squad standard) We plan to run some sessions on Sundays on the dates below for a more advanced groups including zone squad level and Intermediate / National squad level.
