We recently handed out a newsletter at the end of summer camp highlighting what is to come in the Youth Sailing calendar for September. Highlights include:
- A two day coaching weekend with one of the RYA’s top coaches – September 11th/12th
- The Moonlight Race – Evening of September 11th
- The Topper Open – 18th September
- Wednesday Evenings and a look ahead to the Blackaby Cup
2 day coaching weekend with Ian Patience, the RYA’s National Youth Squad Coach
11th/12th September. This Course is not to be missed. Over two days our young sailors will receive advice and instruction from one of the UK’s top Topper coaches.
The whole weekend will cost just £ 10 to cover the cost of fuel for the support boats. If you want to camp over at the club, then you’re more than welcome to.
Bonus Family Fun!
On the evening of Saturday 11th September the club will be hosting its annual moonlight sail. Starting at 7.30 and finishing after dark, the race is great for families. This year the theme is “How does your Garden grow?” so decorate you boat and get dressed up.
Afterwards, we’ll light the BBQ. All you need to bring is some food to cook or share.
Saturday 18th September. Want to try out your newly found racing skills? This event is just for you and your topper. Arrive at the club around 9.30 and the racing starts at 11am and lasts all day. If you’re a little unsure of what to do then there will be race coaches to help you around the course.
Best of all the event is free to all club members.
Wednesday Night Sailing
If you enjoyed the race evening during summer camp, why not come along on Wednesday evenings until the end of September. See the website for start times.
Over the weekend of the 9th/10th October the club holds the final weekend in the club championship. This event has a special category for Juniors.
Not yet a Junior Member of Stewartby?
Junior membership costs just £29 and you can continue to enjoy sailing at Stewartby with the friends you’ve made at camp. If you have your own boat, we have safety boat cover on Saturdays until mid-October and every Sunday all year round! If you want to hire a topper then this will cost you just £5 per session.
Being a member also means we’re better able to keep you in touch with everything that is going on at the club. There’s plenty to fun to be had all year round with special events and training for junior and youth sailors.
