Sail4All » S4A 9
Back for the coming season by popular demand, Sail4All (S4A) will be available on many Saturday afternoons throughout the summer months. The main purpose of S4A is to provide a safe, supervised and enjoyable environment on a non-race day in which all club members can practise their sailing skills. To this end, every session is a "free sail" with safety boat and beachmaster support.
S4A also provides the club with an opportunity to fulfil its aim to "improve the sailing skills of members". We therefore add some extra value to S4A sessions for any sailor wishing to take advantage by offering some light-touch coaching. Sessions will be themed around some of the boat handling, safety and racing techniques covered by the RYA Level 2 syllabus, and experienced club members will be on hand to demonstrate techniques in focused "Confidence Builder (CB)" sessions. S4A sailors who wish to take advantage of a confidence builder will be teamed with club members who have volunteered to transfer their skills.
All club members are welcome to attend S4A, to enjoy sailing and what the club has to offer on Saturday aftenoons. Sail in your own boat or, for a small fee (£10), take advantage of a boat provided by the club (a small number of which will be reserved for CB sessions).
