Dear Fellow ESC Sailors

It is that time of year when thoughts start turning to the next season of sailing! I am writing with regard upcoming training courses for our adult members.

Over the course of the season, we will be running the following courses:

  • ‘Start of the Season – Shake off the Rust’. A two-day course aimed at getting you backing the water and improving confidence.
  • RYA Levels 1, 2, and 3. A four-day course. More info on content here
  • RYA Start Racing. A four-day course. More info on content here
  • RYA Sailing with Spinnakers. A four-day course. More info on content here
  • Laser/Aero/D0/Single-Hander Advanced Coaching. One day per month with attendees in their own boats and a recognised advanced coach.

Based on feedback from last year, the courses will be limited to 2 attendees in a Club boat (Bahia) together with a Dinghy Instructor (DI), also in the boat, overseen by a Sailing Instructor (SI) who will be on the water in a RIB. The Start Racing course will be 2 attendees on their own in a Club boat (no DI) (Feva or Scow) with at least two boats on the water, overseen by a dedicated Sailing Instructor in a RIB. The Single-Hander advanced coaching will be attendees in their own boat (6-8 boats on the water) with a dedicated senior coach in a RIB.

The cost of the courses is £125 for the ‘Shake Off the Rust’ course, £250 for the RYA Levels 1, 2, 3 and Spinnakers courses, £140 for the Start Racing course, and £25 per session for the Single-Hander Advanced Coaching.

All courses will be run only if there is sufficient demand. The current batch runs from Easter to the May half-term. We will run a second batch after this. If you are interested in a course, please complete the online Doodle Poll for each course and indicate your availability against the possible dates.  Please be as flexible as you can. We will do our best to get everyone who wants training out on the water.

Please complete an online availability poll for each course in which you are interested. 

Please complete polls by Sunday, 4th March
