We are taking advantage of the Easter Bank Holiday weekend and offering members new (and longstanding) an opportunity to refine their sailing skills by joining our Sail & Learn event, which provides for attendees to obtain the formal "Competent Crew" qualification.
This event will be hosted by our Rear Commodore Training, Tomas, and our commercial partner, Commodore Yachting (www.commodore-yachting.com) and therefore there will be a (heavily discounted) charge payable to them. At present, Tomas estimates costs of around £300 based upon 6-7 attendees. This event will operate on a first come first served basis, so please register and arrange payment with Tomas. If we reach full capacity, we are likely to organise another such event later in the season.
The event will start on 15 April 2022 at Commodore Yachting's Gosport Offices, whereby Tomas will spend time with the attendees familiarising them with their boat and preparing for the days ahead. Please be able to arrive late afternoon/evening of 15 April 2022. Accommodation on the yacht and training is included. You will return to Gosport on 18 April 2022.
Your skipper, Tomas, will then be in charge for the weekend and ensure attendees gain as much experience on the water as possible.
In addition, it is hoped that Tomas will bring the training boat and all attendees along to the far larger members' event, the Easter Rally, which starts in Lymington and then moves to Port Hamble Marina.
For those members that are interested, please register on this event and Tomas will be in touch with more details closer to the time and arrange payment.
