RYA Level 1 Training Weekend

In very hot weather and light winds we finally started training again after a long delay due to COVID. Four subscribed but one had to drop out due to COVID (!) leaving Rob, Steve and Callum to get to grips with sailing. Slightly more challenging due to the light and very variable winds but the course was a success, proved by the last session where each student successfully sailed a Comet for 45 minutes with no dramas and brought the boats safely back to shore. Thank you to all of the instructing staff, Helen, Ralph, Simon and Keith for giving their time voluntarily and submitting themselves to the blistering heat.


RYA Training

Saturday 9th July and Sunday 10th July

Fun sailing on the river

Arden Sailing Club is a thriving club which has enjoyed many years of fun on the river Avon at Defford, near Pershore. There is organised dinghy racing on Wednesday evenings and Sundays during the summer along with many social events throughout the year. The club is an RYA approved training centre. We have a small fleet of club boats available and give friendly advice to new members encouraging them to take to the water in the improvers or full race programme or, of course, just for fun.

Request to Officers of the Day.
This year to try and keep track of each race series as we go a long and so that everyone can see how they are doing I will provide a printed sheet for each series that will be placed on the board in the starters hut. I would ask that the OOD on the day fills in the results on the sheet. In the case of the Pursuit and Handicap series the sheet will also act as the record of the revised handicaps for the next leg of the series.
Ralph Evans - Sailing Secretary

Could I also request that you email me a picture of the race result scoresheet and write a one paragraph summary of racing with two pictures so that I can publish it on the website.
