We’ve planned four Topper & Oppy coaching sessions for Saturday mornings in July, Please register your interest now, details below.
Four coaching sessions are offered on Saturday mornings from July 4th to 25th inclusive for Optimist and Topper sailors.
Objectives include (1) preparation of sailors interested in developing racing skills for club and national class events. (ii) improved sailing skills and fun on the water
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 ISA level 2 or have equivalent frequent casual sailing experience e.g. “Water Time” sessions, club racing or IODAI event racing.
What: 2 hours on the water, 1 hour brief / debrief, tidy boat storage
When: Optimists assemble 9:30am for briefing and launch 10:30 am
Toppers assemble 10:30am for briefing and launch 11:30am
Cost: €80 payable in advance for members and associate members
Volunteer: RIBs, RIB drivers and on-the -water video operators required
Notes: (1) Provisional on the Roadmap for Reopening Society and Business and corresponding WHSC guidelines (2) Places are limited by coach and safety boat driver availability therefore first (qualified) come, first served.
