Video roll – Looking back at our September Optimist Sailors

Take a look at the smiles on our video roll of Optimist sailors, mostly under 10, enjoying freestyle sailing. Using club boats and their own boats with casual instruction from volunteer parents on Saturday mornings in September. What a great way to finish the season and introduce young ones to the fun of sailing.

And you thought the Season was over ?

Like last year our season is extending well into September

3 groups of sailors went onto the water to enjoy all that WHSC has to offer

It started early with 17 young sailors in Optimists who are at the beginning of their career.

This group has been taken under the wings by Ben O’Sullivan as leader and a lot of detail had been covered

In his ‘first’ as looking after a large group.

The group was supported by 16 parents all helping with rescue, launching , registration and instruction. Well done Ben !

Then our development squad went on the water with Dave Marsden, they are the sailors with some more experience and Dave is teaching them to improve on the Water in sailing and racing skills.

At 15.00 all other sailors went on the water and again Dave look after the course and the results. A Beautiful day in Dunmore

and many ended up in our club house well run by Sean for some refreshment’s after their time on the water.

Thanks for all your Help !
