Youth Improvers Training

12th May @ 13:30 - 17:00

Calling All Juniors:

The first junior session is fast approaching – this Saturday (12th May)! I hope you all remember how to set your boats up and how to sail! This junior session will be filled with lots of fun and sailing. We will be on the water at 13:30 hrs, so I hope to see you all there before that! The format of the junior sessions have been altered for this year, with there being no junior race included in the junior sessions itself, and instead they will be filled with many hours of fun! The junior racing is aligned with the Sunday Summer Series during the first race which starts at 14:00 hrs. The first date for this is the 1st of July.

This year for 2018, the junior sessions are alternating between Saturdays and Fridays! The second junior session will be on Friday the 18th May. We are aiming to make the junior sessions this year to be as fun and exciting as possible, so if anyone (you don’t have to be a junior to make a suggestion!) has any suggestions of games or perhaps ‘themes’ for particular junior sessions in order to make them more fun and hopefully attract more junior sailors to join in, please email me on: youth@attenboroughsc.org.uk

Also, if anyone is afraid that they have forgotten everything, I will be down at the club on the water Friday the 11th in the evening from around 5pm to 7pm, so if anyone wants to come down and have a little sail before the first junior session this Saturday, please feel free!

The comet open is on the 9th June, with the first race at 11:00 am and the briefing at 10:30 am. This is all about participation, having fun and meeting new people than it is about winning the race. It is a great event to be a part of, so if anyone is interested in taking part, you can contact Malcolm Davidson about borrowing a comet from someone in the club: malcolmdavidson@talktalk.net

I have mentioned many important dates in this post, so here is a quick list so that you can easily put them in your diary:
Saturday 12th May – first junior session of 2018! We’ll be on the water by 13:30 hrs
Friday 18th May – second junior session – on the water by 18:30 hrs
Saturday 9th June – ASC Comet Open – briefing at 10:30 hrs
Sunday 1st July – first junior race – on the water by 14:00 hrs

I hope to see all of you down at the junior session either this Saturday or next Friday!
If you have any questions about the junior sessions, please email me: youth@attenboroughsc.org.uk or Keith Brereton: training@attenboroughsc.org.uk
