The National Yacht Club are making preparations to run clinics for our junior members from June until August 2021. Last year we learnt how to deal with Covid 19 and provided successful clinics for all of our young members. We have learnt a lot and plan to do things much better this year.
We plan to offer clinics in start sailing, basic skills, improving skills, advanced boat handling, start racing, kites and wires (using club wayfarers and ventures), team racing (using our club fireflies), feva clinics and adventure clinics. We also plan to run optimist and laser racing clinics with our advanced racing coaches throughout the summer.
We will have optimists, toppers and FEVAs to charter for members who want to try out a different boat over the summer.
We will keep you updated, but please be reassured that we are planning a wonderful summer for you all at the National Yacht Club.
Provisional dates for Summer clinics in the NYC.
Course 1 – 7th June – 18th June (10 days)
Course 2 – 21st June – 1st July (9 days due to VOLVO regatta)
Course 3 – 5th July – 16th July (9 days due to VOLVO regatta)
Course 4 – 19th July – 30th July (10 days)
Course 5 – 2nd August – 13th August (10 days)
We will be advertising and taking bookings for the clinics on a month by month basis rather than for the whole summer at a time. This is because things are constantly changing with the pandemic with regards to what we are allowed to do according to government regulations and what events are going to be allowed to happen. Please be reassured that we will be organising as much as we possibly can for the whole summer for your sailors. We will plan to allow people book on line the 1st week of May for the clinics commencing 7th June onwards.
