Easter Junior course 2017

The annual Easter Junior course took place in April this year, with nearly 30 participants on the Junior and adult courses (adults mainly being parents).

With two Oppie groups and two Topper groups along with a Sailability sailor, all the safety boats were kept busy in the gusty conditions. Monday saw a light to moderate wind and sun, Tuesday was a similar day, Wednesday was windier, whilst Thursday was a light pleasant breeze to consolidate all the knowledge. The Toppers did very well in the conditions with many gaining RYA Stages 1,2,3  the Oppie group went from very young (the Minions with the Vice Commodore Adrian leading with help from Heather and many others) to a little older taken by Chris, Steve, Tom and David, to Toppers taken by Mikle & David & Kevin, some of whom took to sailing well, others preferred the cobble. (hope i haven’t missed anyone)

Thanks should also go to Sarah who beavered away behind the scenes every day, Paulene for food, Viv & crew (s) for safety and of course the only person not really thanked at the award ceremony George Stanton as SI, who is in overall charge. Some photos below.
