A group of intrepid sailors Â keen to progress their development undertook a combined Level 1 and 2 course, the Level 2 partivipants being graduates from our Level 1 sailing course back in July. Â Supported by RYA qualified instructirs and star volunteers from the club, the sailors have now put aside their “L” plates and proven themselves by attaining the Level 1 & 2 standard having followed the RYA sylllabus over two weekends. Â Particularly notable for the “exciting” conditions on the second day, 30th September, the budding Ben Ainslie’s all showed their mettle having clearly paid attention to their instructors. Â It was especially interesting wathcing them rise to the challenge of steering without rudders and centre boards!
The photo below shows our worthy fellow dinghy sailors proudly showing their certificates, Â Well done to you all from your fellow club members!
A special thank you for all our instructirs and volunteers who made these courses possible: the photo below shows them with their pupils (or pupils no longer – here’s looking forward to some really good races!).
