Event Information:

The Association is planning to organise a pre-Nationals training session at Weymouth on the Friday afternoon - the day before racing takes place.
We are seeking expressions of interest in this. The format of the session is still to be decided but could be something along the lines of:
-land session on boat set-up
-on the water session on race technique
-classroom based session on what to expect on the race course, the start, rules, etc.
The final format can be agreed around those things that the majority would like to cover. And it may be weather dependant on the day.
Brian Phipps will be on hand to lead the session ably aided and abetted by class multihull sailors and instructors.
We are thinking of kicking off around noon/1pm until around 5-6pm.
There will be a cost, exact amount to be worked out but will depend on interest. I would say somewhere between £10-£20 as a preliminary budget to cover power boat support costs and classroom space, etc..
Places will be allocated on a first come/first served basis with priority given to nationals first timers.
If you would like to sign up for the session, please email me with your details including:
-tel. no.
-sailing club
-any aspects you wish to be covered in the session
-if you are a first time competitor at the Nationals
-any other questions/suggestions that spring to mind
So, if you'd like to join the session, email me soonest at :
The basic idea is to develop confidence in large fleet sailing and dispel any myths.
