Junior Fleet has Started!

Last Sunday, despite some really horrible weather we began Junior Fleet!


This year we are initially offering Start Sailing 1 and Start Sailing 2 for the beginners and have a fantastic new instructor.


We have a group of young children who are absolute beginners and we would like to grow the numbers, so if you have young children please get in contact or turn up at 9:00 on Sunday. The course will run rain, hail or shine, as it combines theory and some practice, which is best done off water. All confidence levels are accepted!


For the older children, I am trying to organise racing on Saturday afternoons. To take part, children will need to have completed Start Sailing 1 & 2. Stay posted for more details.


Also, we are trying to put a youth team together to race Rocket Science in the pursuits every second Sunday. Once again the prerequisite for this program is successful completion of Start Sailing 1 & 2. Please contact us at juniorfleet@hbyc.org.au if you’re interested.

 
Finally, in the near future we hope to be able to offer a Start Sailing 1 & 2 for teenagers and adults. If you are interested, please contact us at juniorfleet@hbyc.org.au so we can gauge interest levels.


We would love to see all the junior fleet and their parents at the club Sunday so let’s hope we get a day where we can get on the water for a change!!! If you haven’t registered yet, don’t worry, just download the form here and bring it with you on the day.
