Dave Maxwell filed this report late last night after what was universally described as "Another successful Junior Sailing Week!"
This year we had 15 participants including one complete beginner and 3 others who haven't sailed with us before (one visitor + two from up the coast). We also had a new instructor, Robyn, who despite being introduced to the committee during the Campbell Cup weekend, bravely still decided to join us. Siobhan Osborne kindly volunteered to help with the beginners each morning.
|That's Robyn laying down the law. A hit with everyone. Come back soon!|
|Full on Fevas. Nicely set up, crew weight just right. Girl power...|
Robyn did a great job and was a big hit with the yuf so has been invited back next year - subject to dates etc.
|Rohan, with unique tiller style, and rather worried looking crew go for it.|
The RIB and Pioner worked a treat and all the other equipment held up well with the only minor issues being flat tyres on the trolleys (more solid types please) and some out-hauls being replaced.
|Now that's a challenge to the geriatrics sailing Flying Fifteens.|
As always, it was a team effort with parents pitching in with RIB/Pioner driving, shore support, hot chocolate making, cakes and BBQ food. A special mention goes to Siobhan for helping out on the water every the morning and then going sailing herself every afternoon.
