TOPPER RACE COACHING COURSE & REGATTA - August 26-30

< Back

Topper Sailing At Island Barn Reservoir Sailing Club​​​​​​​

August 26-30
TOPPER RACE COACHING COURSE & REGATTA

Led by Ben Kimbell (RYA Regional Coach)

For up to 14 young sailors who want to improve their racing.
Likely ages 9-17.
Non-members welcome.

We hope to run this as two separate courses – one group for racing beginners and the other for intermediate and advanced sailors.
It should be a great warm-up for the autumn travellers, selectors and club racing.

Cost: £180 members: £220 non-members

Limited number of club boats available but only to members
Youth membership costs £40/yr for non-boat owners so this could be a better option

  Book Now  

Mini-regatta on August 30 – prizes galore
Children should bring packed lunches, but hot drinks and calorific snacks will be provided. There’s also a microwave to heat food.
We’d ask parents help for at least one day of the course but this isn’t essential
Parents can sail too – we’ll run an adult fun course or a racing course if there’s enough demand so tell us if you’re interested

Inquiries Jonathan Leake jrleake@gmail.com or 07799 772253

All participants bringing their own boat must hold third party insurance for racing of at least £2,000,000.
(This is a standard requirement for open meetings too)
