Junior sailing report - Saturday 27th August 2016

The wind was far too strong to take to the water, so we did a land based session, learning about the parts of the Optimist and how to rig it, revised the basic knots and did tacking drills with an Opti on a launching trolley. Eight children attended and we finished with a game of Captain's Coming, which is always popular, and Jack's Dad treated everyone to some luscious cup cakes from the Farmer's Market. 

The new Programme is in the process of being planned and printed, and the aim is to have a working bee in the holidays to involve the junior sailors, so they learn about boat maintenance too.
