June 2020 Topper and Optimist Coaching

We’ve planned two Topper & Oppi coaching sessions in June, Saturday mornings 20th and 27th. Register your interest NOW, details below.


Contingent on Government Roadmap for Reopening Society and Business, two coaching sessions are offered on Saturday mornings on June 20th and 27th for Optimist and Topper sailors. Corresponding WHSC COVID-19 guidelines will apply also.

Objectives include (1) improved sailing skills and fun on the water and (2) preparation of sailors interested in developing racing skills for club and national class events. Provisionally, this will be extended with a 4 x session series in July.

Considering the wind levels, possible sea state and temperature it is necessary for safety and tuition quality purposes to limit places as follows: 

  • Topper sailors who are qualified to minimum ISA level 3 or ISA level 2 with sailing experience and / or racing experience.
  • Competent Optimist sailors who are qualified to minimum Club ‘Cool Cadets’ or ISA level 1 with frequent casual sailing experience e.g. “Water Time” sessions.

What:              1 – 2 hours on the water, 1 hour brief / debrief, boat storage

When:             10am – 1pm, June 20th & 27th

Cost:               €40 payable in advance for members and associate members
