Easter Topper and Laser Junior Training

  • Easter Training for Toppers and Lasers at IBRSC

    This winter at Island Barn has seen young Topper and Laser sailors joining the club racers like never before - and getting some great placings.

    Now we're offering a chance to help the kids to even better - with a three-day Easter Topper race training course led by a professional RYA coach.

    Ben Kimbell will take them through:

    • Boat handling
    • Tactics
    • Starting
    • Reading the wind
    • Boat Tuning and preparation
    • Physical fitness
    • Winning protests (inc against adults 😎 ) 

    The course will run from Tuesday April 9-11 and cost £130 to members (£145 non-members) - about half the cost of commercial courses. It should be a great warm-up for Travellers and other open meetings, or club racing.

    This is a chance for all young Island Barn sailors, whatever they helm usually, to gain more of the racing and helming skills needed for winning.

    It's aimed at a mix of levels - beginner racers as well as advanced but participants must be already able to rig (with help) and sail.

    We haven't promoted it widely yet so members get first chance to book. If interested go to the training menu on the IBRSC website.

    NB We need 6 kids to make this course viable so final confirmation depends on that.
