Sailing and Racing Sessions
Friday evening sailing sessions for adult members who have already undertaken some RYA training and are Level 2
and juniors who are Stage 1-2 as a minimum who need practice.
JUNIOR “OPEN SESSIONS”
There are basic confidence building sessions for juniors on Friday evenings. In particular those who have completed Stage 1 / Stage 2 courses this year. Contacts : Alasdair McBroom, Alistair McCarlie, Kerry McCarlie.
There are a few guidelines around this activity as this is not a formal RYA course and therefore no administration will take place.
Parents must remain at the Club whilst their children are taking part in these open sessions, or have agreed responsibilities with another parent prior to the activity. Please ensure the volunteers in charge are aware of the arrangements.
All children must be members and have taken part in the RYA Youth Sailing Scheme at CAYC.
Anyone manning a RIB or assisting the driver of the RIB must be a member or an associate member. Power boat L2 certification is preferred.
All parental assistance on shore is welcomed.
The Club has limited dinghy resources, therefore children will need to take turns in helming and sharing the club dinghies.
5 x Optimists, 2 x Toppers ( 1 has a smaller 4.2 sail available), 2 x PICOs.
Parents with sailing experience may wish to utilise one of the 3 x GP14s to take their children out as another option.
As expected on courses they must be appropriately dressed for all weather conditions and have a well fitted buoyancy aid.
