YOUTH SAIL TRAINING

Our youth sailors went out in a gentle North Westerly breeze of 10 - 15 knots and practiced sailing on a beat (close hauled) between Glencairn and Phoenix buoys.

We have seen 18 youth sailors joining our training programme on a Friday afternoon and Saturday mornings.

MODEL YACHT REGATTA - A great success

Prepping for race
Round the cans
The weather was great for these little yachts. The weather was warm wind was light and the racing was competitive. Many of the club sailors came down to see the yachts in action. Some even gave it a go.
