Team 15 news:
Nov 17: Our Team 15ers have been visiting other clubs on a Midlands training circuit organised by each club. The first one was at Burton where the Team 15 Notts County Outlaws Duncan and Lynus Monaghan, Charlotte Taylor and Mollie Spreckley enjoyed a trip to Burton Sailing Club at the end of October to join Max Bushell – RYA Youth Windsurfing Race Coach, for a day’s race training. We have joined with other local sailing clubs to put together a Midlands Winter Windsurfing Calendar and we’re looking forward to our next trip to Glossop Sailing Club on Sunday 26th November. The Teams come to Notts County on 3rd December.
The club is in the process of rebuilding our Team 15 initiative, thanks to Julie Hall & Sue Sprekley and helpers who spent last September & October teaching a core group of youngsters, who are now regularly sailing and improving on a Wednesday night.
The idea of Team 15 is to have a group of regular attendees to build up junior windsurfing in the club, from there you can go in any direction, racing, instruction, freestyle, waves or just plain fun! The RYA has some info on its site. We would like youngsters to have achieved RYA Stage 2 at least via a course, otherwise they get very little out of the sessions and then tend to give up.
The intention is for this to continue to grow and we will coach youngsters into whatever sphere they wish to go. Wednesday night use of equipment is free (like Saturday Club) but we would value help from parents. If there is an RYA course that takes preference, otherwise equipment is either shared or first come first served.
Come down on Wednesdays after 4,30pm approx and join us.
