There is an opportunity this year for young sailors age 17-25 years to form their own team on one of WHSC’s Cruisers.
Yacht “Seven Whistlers” will be going back in the water well prepared and is hoping to develop with “in house” coaches and external coaches a new generation of cruiser sailors.
You will be tasked with all the aspects of cruiser sailing on the boat in such a way that you will feel confident that you can sail and race a cruiser at the end of the season.
Aspects that will be coached:
- Boat preparation
- Start strategy
- First to windward marker
- Sail trim
At the end of the season we will be able to give the oldies a lesson in sailing .
What is required from you:
Availability to practice on Saturdays in May 14.00-17.00 hours
Availability for sailing frequently on Thursday – Sunday afternoons
Be a reliable part of the team
Membership for 2019 of Waterford Harbour Sailing club
Previous sailing experience would be great but not a pre-requisite.
