The intention is to get as many boats and people on the water as possible, we are excepting a mix of experienced racers and beginners, juniors and seniors, double and single handed,………
Basically everyone is welcome, the only prerequisite is to bring a Mirror, please spread the word to anyone else you think might be interested!
In addition we will have access to coaching from James Douglas, Dee SC Training Officer who will be running a number of coaching sessions through the season, which we will keep you informed on.
So with the first race next Saturday 5th April, you have a week to dig out a Mirror & get it ready for what should be a great year. Any one needing help with any patching up let us know & we will do our best to provide advice and point you in the right direction.
Please feel free to get in touch if you have any queries, equally there is Junior sailing at the lake from 14:30 this Saturday, the perfect opportunity to blow away the cobwebs.
We look forward to seeing you all soon.
