Junior Sailing Friday 27th November 2015

posted Dec 14, 2015, 11:22 AM by Admin hycnz

Six Juniors turned up on Friday evening to take to the water and learn a little more about how to sail, and have fun on the way. The newly reconditioned Custard Slice, thanks again to Gary Matthews for all his efforts getting her ready to sail, took to the water helmed by Corin, and crewed by Rory and Jack. The other Sunburst, the Cube was skippered by Gill, with Mackenzie and Devon acting as crew, but also taking it in turns to helm. Harrison was the only solo sailor and he took out the Opti, Floating Toy and had a great session manoevring all over the sailing area with ease and skill. 

The clouds started to build, so prudence took the better part of valour, and we skipped the capsize drill, to leave the pleasure for another day. And we were glad to be in the clubhouse when the heavens opened with a torrential downpour, rather than out on the jetty fishing small people out of the water.

Next Junior Sailing is on Friday 4th December as per calendar. Please contact Gill if you are coming.
