After consulting with junior fleet class captains and commodore Michael Walsh we have taken the decision to cancel the remaining training sessions for the junior fleets for 2020. COVID 19 restrictions means that the Christmas Regatta is also cancelled for this year. Dinghy Instructor and Advanced Instructor courses are also cancelled, and we hope to reschedule them in the new year, ideally when the country is at level 2 or better.

Turnout at the Autumn coaching days was particularly good, especially among the optimist and topper fleets. Hopefully, we can maintain this interest into 2021. A big thank you to the coaches (Scott, Cliodhna, Jack, Francesca, and others) who managed training over the past weeks feedback from the participants and parents was great.

Those of you who have boats stored in the dinghy park, please ensure that they are fully derigged (sails removed, masts broken down and covers correctly fitted) and tidily stored away. Our preference is that if possible, you should store them away from the club until you are ready to go sailing again.
