Laser Skills Training Day

Saturday 10th Oct 2020

Anyone wishing to brush up boat handling and racing skills in a Laser Standard, Radial or 4.7 is more than welcome to join in this Laser day. To get the most out of the day you need to have started a few races, able to sail upwind, tack and gybe in the laser. We will be spitting into groups at times , and we hope to have mini handicapped races with the whole group for fun.

Andy Kerr, who is an RYA coach, will be coordinating the day and we will have some experienced sailors to give advice and help out. The sessions will be dictated by weather conditions on the day, but we plan to include

  • Speed , and getting the most out of your control lines (Cunningham, outhaul and kicker).
  • Upwind work, no good going fast in the wrong direction.
  • Mark rounding under pressure.
  • Starting.

The objective of the day is to get to meet all sailing levels in the Laser so everyone is comfortable to join in the competitive lively fun Sunday races at the club .

Places are limited, so please register at  Laser Coaching Day.

If you would like lunch, please also pre-book, with Wych kitchen – details and menu can be found here.

Covid update 25 Sept 2020

Clubhouse

It is now the law that you have to wear a face covering indoors (unless you are exempt) in more places than before – and this affects all areas of our clubhouse including the toilets.  Face coverings can only be removed while you are seated at a table in the clubroom to eat or drink. 

THE NHS Covid-19 track and trace app was launched on 24 September and we have put up the NHS Covid-19 track and trace poster at each entrance to the clubhouse.  You can download the App from the Apple App Store or Google Play.  You can read all about the App here.  While we encourage you to download and use the App, please note that as the clubhouse is only open to members, you will still need to provide your name and membership number to Wych’s Kitchen if you are booking a table in the clubroom. 

Can’t remember your membership number?  It’s on your boat sticker or you can find it on the club’s website under Members Area, My Membership Number.

Racing

Ernie sent out a Racing News update this week, setting out new race start times in order to make racing Covid-secure under the latest regulations and guidance.  Full details can be found here if you missed it.
