2017 Season - organised 'Junior Cadet' Sail Training Events

For the sixth season in succession, BYC will be running a series of six Cadet Sail Training days, aimed at younger and less experienced Cadets:
  • Informal training sessions, provided by BYC 'RYA qualified' dinghy sailing instructors.
  • Build on skills already gained from Cadet Week, plus introduce competitive sailing.
  • Sailing will take place east of the club's moorings to provide a clear sailing area.
  • Full support boat back up provided
  • For the new cadets in 2017 (ie those just turning 7) we will again put them on the water in one of the clubs larger boats (GP14, Feva or Leader) with an instructor so they feel confident before being let loose in an Optimist. 
Parental support is essential to help with rigging, launching, recovery and packing away, with a small number to assist on the water. Parents must stay on site throughout.
