Dear Fellow ESC Sailors!

Summer is coming to a close and we are organising our final tranche of Adult Sail Training for the 2019 season.  The dates span from mid-September to the end of October.

Subject to demand we will be running the following courses:

  1. RYA Levels 1, 2, and 3. A four-day course. More info on content here.
  2. RYA Sailing with Spinnakers. A four-day course. More info on content here.
  3. Club-sponsored Continuation Sailing (free to ESC members)
  4. Rigging instruction for club boats (free to ESC members)

The format of the courses is as follows. The RYA Levels 1,2,3 and Spinnaker courses are limited to 2 attendees in a Club boat (Bahia) together with a Dinghy Instructor (DI), also in the boat, overseen by a Sailing Instructor (SI) who will be on the water in a RIB.  These will take 4 days. 

The Club has run a club-sponsored Continuation Sailing session one day per month from April through September.  As above, a Dinghy Instructor will supervise the session from a RIB. These are free to members – turn up with your boat, or hire a boat from the club, and have a fun sail!  The remaining date is:

            Sat 21 Sep        15:00 – 19:00

The Club will also sponsor rigging training on the club boats.  This is free to members.  The dates are the same as the Club-sponsored Continuation Sailing, and the start time for rigging is one hour before the start of Continuation Sailing.  You can attend either or both the rigging and Continuation Sailing sessions.

The cost of the Club-run courses is £250 for the RYA Levels 1, 2, 3 and Spinnakers courses, and free for the club-sponsored Continuation Sailing and Rigging courses.

All courses will be run subject to sufficient demand. If you are interested in a course, please complete the Online Doodle poll for each course and indicate your availability against the possible dates. Please be as flexible as you can.  We will organise the course dates around your availability. We will do our best to get everyone who wants training out on the water. If you want to take two courses (e.g., RYA Levels 1 and 2) please fill out each respective Doodle poll and email me that you've done this, and I'll adjust when organising sessions.

Please complete each online availability poll for each course in which you are interested. Please complete these polls by Wednesday 04 September. If you complete the poll after this date, I will still try and accommodate you, but it will be much easier if you sign up before then.
