May Cadet Training Weekend

22/05/2019 13:21 | Hon Cadet Skipper (Administrator)

Light winds prevailed for our first full training weekend of the year, this gave the perfect opportunity for our new sailors on the lake to gain confidence under the expert tutorage of Nick O’Connor with his new glamourous assistant Kylie Gooch.

After being assigned their nick names for the year the Jolly Sailors made good progress towards their Level 2 badge.

On the river we had good sailing conditions on the Saturday with an unforecast Sea Breeze developed. On the Sunday we were met with a flat calm but the cadets still went out and  managed to get to a Millbeach for an ice cream, the Laser group had fun with no rules racing. All our sailors were rewarded when steady F2 breeze picked up at 2pm which allowed us to get some sailing in for the last hour.

Here’s hoping for stronger winds for our next training weekend on the 15/16th of June.
