Dart 16 winter training

Lee Matthews (Rear Commodore Sailing)

BTraining 1

Three crews took to the water today on the 4th winter training session that’s been held over the close season.

A “little” less wind than on the 24th Jan, meant the guys were able to spend more time on the water getting used to the strange double hulled crafts!

Training 2

After tacking and gybing practice, everyone quickly got the hang of it and we were able to introduce a competitive edge to proceedings with 3 quick races.

Jack and Issy were victorious in the first race, which saw the teams quickly realise you can’t tack a cat like you can a firefly! After that Octavia and Ruby took control with 2 wins, to narrowly edge the overall result after an indiscretion in the first race led to disqualification!!

The day was finished off with burgers and cups of tea, sat by the fire to warm up!

Many thanks to all the helpers and the sailers for making it a great session, the next one is scheduled for Sat 21st Feb. If you would like to join in please let Simon know on  com@dee-sc.co.uk

Cheers

Lee
