Unfortunately the previous date I proposed for the training day proved not to be very popular. We have therefore postponed it until Saturday 19th May. This will also make it part of our “Push the Boat Out” weekend.
As a reminder of what we are proposing: –
“John and Helen have volunteered to lead a training session for DWSC Flying Fifteen Sailors to help prepare us for the sailing season ahead. After an initial on-shore briefing and discussion, exercises will be performed afloat which are likely to include start practice; tacking and gybing practice; etc. If there is any particular skills you want to hone up on please let us know before the day. The intention is to video these sessions and provide a debrief over lunch and at the end of the day.
“I have agreed with the club that this training day will be free to club members as long as we can find a qualified volunteer (or volunteers) to drive the Rib. Please could any volunteer please let me know if they are available and willing to help out as soon as possible. If we can find multiple power boat drivers we can organise to swap around during the day.
“We will kick off with a discussion in the Wet Bar starting at 10.00 am. Please be rigged but not changed by this time.”
Please could you let me know whether you would like to join us for this training day. If you have any questions please call Michael Clapp on 077 6468 1410 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
