The youth training sessions on 15 and 19 June saw all of our youth groups – Race, Tues, Simon, Oppies – all active and enjoying the water. Mostly light winds, so capsizing practice with Jim and Jack on Tuesday. That followed from a rather hectic launching session, the slipway still in use by the film crew vehicles, an added hurdle which was unexpected.
Where shall we launch the RHIBs?
A bit freer, Tim and Chris look on, Henry stands in the Pico rigging area with Sally
We got on the water, took longer to rig than usual, Jeremy helped Jane and Jim briefed his group. E/H were brilliant helping Ints launch with Ella under crowded conditions. Jack called all his together at the Cardinal.
Trolleys stacked in the only safe space!
On Saturday, the weather wasn’t brilliant so lots of space for Sarah to check her Oppies
And Tim to prepare his string for towing with his Rib.
Meanwhile, Simon’s group made their way out of the harbour through the restricted fairway
The keen racers from Jerry’s Race Group got together at lunchtime with Graham and he did a session on RRS, Port and Starboard, before some joined him for the club race in the afternoon.
Not just lunch, serious stuff! But in context and followed by briefing on the afternoon club race. L to r, Tom, Ben, Ferdy, Ptolemy, Harvey, Simon standing, Graham. Second Rules session for this group will be on Sat 26 June. Windward Boat keeps clear.
We do have a vibrant Youth section but although I keep getting enquiries, we are completely full for 2021. We hope things will be easier for us all next season.
