Junior pond sessions

We are excited to announce our Pond Dates. These are training sessions aimed at our younger sailors to give them a bit of extra confidence and practise before heading out on the river.

Our pond sessions will be held at Blackwater Sailing Club this year. They have a huge pond and we will have use of their 15 optimists.

We will use this as an opportunity to assess the children’s ability. This will enable us to put them into groups ready for training on the river. We will have lots of coaches, including some of our older juniors to help on the day. They will be on the water or can get into the boat with the children if needed.

At the end of each session we will have capsize / righting practise so do ensure your children are dressed appropriately.

Each session is £10 per child. You can book in for as many or as little as you like.

Please email ffraser7@yahoo.co.uk with the following information;

Child name, Parent name and the date(s) you would like to book.

Please ensure you have completed your membership before attending the pond sessions.
