Despite a mixed forecast, the May Bank Holiday weekend delivered some fantastic sunshine and great light to moderate winds to enable our young sailors to get their “sea” legs back. We had a group of wonderfully enthusiastic beginners taking to the water for the first time, whilst the intermediates and racing group demonstrated they’d forgotten little over the winter. It was also great to see so many Toppers/Lasers out on the water, a few of which thoroughly tested the water temperature! A great start to the season for Spinnaker Youth Training.

The Sailing Committee has been asked to remind all sailors of proper trolley etiquette, especially those sailing off of the beach slipway nearest the club. Once you have launched your boat, please clear the trolley off of the slipway to enable those launching after you or landing before you to do so easily.
