August Junior Course

Another successful Junior Course of around 32 with 3 Stage 1& 2 courses in both Oppies and Toppers, a Stage 3 course in Topaz and Start Race Course along with a 2 day windsurf course. There were challenging conditions every day, and Wednesday saw a very wet afternoon (there was about 9 inches of water in the boats! – and still the Topaz went out). Everyone improved, and some budding young potential instructors helped out, along with quite  a few Assistant instructors, it is great to see so many Topper sailors helping get others out on the water (including our 4.2 National champion who did all four days).

Thanks to all who helped : Emily, Helpers Sophie and Sam – Nigel and Matt and Steve with Robert and Sophie on Thur – Kevin, helped by Jade  – Chris, Sarah, helped by Tom – Nick, Martin, Molly, Keith – Sue for Windsurf  course – Steve  and Julie  on safety, and possibly most Importantly Sarah for doing so much behind the scenes, without her the courses would not be as successful.

Some great food was provided by Pauline.
