Youth Sailing

Pic from Roy's trusty Canon G11
The boatyard is now complete, and phase one of the Lotto proposal has been completed right on time,  budget and scope. Credits to Jeremy Nel, and Alan Batley (Club Manager). The dinghies are parked under the covered storage, and the parts will be stored in the small shed. New security and lighting is also in place. Phase two will allow us to employ a trainer, a new fleet of dinghies, and  a new campaign for the L26 keelboats. Meanwhile, Sam, our "development sailing man", has made arrangements with local schools to get the existing dinghies on the water and active, beginning in December. The first stage is for the 8-12 age-group - it looks like an exciting programme!
