RYA Start Racing Courses
Race Officer Training - Dates 29th May 2021
There will be a half day race officer training session in the morning followed by an afternoon of running rapid races. Being an RO at the lake is not difficult, if you can operate a stop watch and read sail numbers you can be RO. There are always people around who will advise on setting the course. You are only responsible for starting and finishing the race, you are not there to judge racers on the course. If you race you should be prepared to volunteer as a Race Officer. Please Contact Jeff Smith (see contacts page) if you would like to attend.
Youth Race Training
Under the guidance of the RYA we have structured our Youth Race Training for young sailors and we are proud to be a RYA British Youth Sailing recognised club. In recent years we have also had visiting RYA coaches running extra coaching sessions for Toppers, Laser and RS Fevas sailors.
Rapid Races - Dates 29th May 2021
This year we have made provision in our programme for an afternoon of rapid races. This is intended for anyone who wants to have a bit of fun practising their race techniques. Races will be at most two short laps and we will cram as many in as possible.
