Let’s Go Sailing

The new season has started with October and November seeing our members children and the Scouts from 1st Port Natal joining in the fun and enjoyment of sailing.
Jennifer Weyer will be hosting the 1st Port Natal Scouts when they have their Holiday Camp. On the 10th December 2015 and the 12th December 2015 when they will have sailing on these two days.

Special Thank you : A Special Thank you must go to Warren Burn for his generous gift of a Gypsey, Imp & Windsurfer to the junior sailing program. We have been blessed with these generous people that have kindly donated to this program. We will soon have to obtain a New Junior shed to house all of our boats and equipment. I will hopefully over the holiday season be able to put racks up to keep the Tera’s and Oppie’s on.

The Junior Programme is to introduce children 8-13 years of age to Optimist and RS Tera sailing in front of RNYC @ high tide.
These courses will be an Intro to Sailing (Basic knots, Rigging & parts of boat) as well as those that have already been sailing GO (Basic Knots, Rigging & Parts of boat, Wind Direction) & START Sailing (as per previous with Wind Direction, Sailing Reach, Beat, Run) .
Numbers are limited to approx. 6 children on these days. Due to the availability of boats.

Should you have your own boat and life jacket please bring them along and we’ll teach you to rig up and go sailing. Oppies and RS Tera’s, life jackets & course notes are supplied on these days.

I would like to once again make a special thank you to all those that contributed last season to assisting and expanding our program. For this Season should anybody wish to contribute with donations/funds/or your time and skills to this program please Contact Graham Rose or myself.
This program runs with volunteers that have a love for SAILING and passing their knowledge to the next generation. Lets pay it forward.

Please keep a look out on the NOTICE BOARDS and NEWS LETTERS. We will also be sending out emails or SMS/Whats apps etc. during the weeks to remind all of these dates and times. Should you wish to be informed on a more personal note Please send me your email/cell numbers so that I can let you know dates and times.
We would like to introduce those that have started to learn the basics to start with mini race courses. These races will be taken as part of Royal’s Sailing season and will go towards trophies at the end of the years prize giving. So LETS GO SAILING and have a FUNZUNSAIL Season.
