We have set up the above club (a club within the club) primarily for new adult members who have taken the RYA Level 1 course, in order to give them a point of contact. And to consolidate what you have learnt on the course. But it is open to all new members, and is a good way to continue your sailing tuition at no cost to you.
The clubs aims are:
The club meets every two weeks on Sunday afternoons during the Spring, Summer & Autumn months, during the winter months usually every 3 – 4 weeks.
David is also trialling Thursday evenings
Timings on the day: Sunday briefing at 2.30pm in downstairs committee room
Thursday evenings briefing at 7pm
Members can of course sail every Sunday either racing or cruising providing that there are no "open Meetings", when only those boats taking part in the event can sail.
There are five open meetings in the year.
Many of our members are looking for novices to crew in their racing dinghies and providing you are prepared to come regularly they will train you to be first class crews.
The NMC is run by David Evans with other experienced helpers.
Dates for the meetings of the New Members club will be advised on the weekly newsletter.
If sailing during the winter months we strongly recommend wearing either a wet suit (Long John) or a drysuit and dinghy sailing boots.
