We have very capable and friendly coaches and, with their assistance, have drawn up an interesting and exciting program for you. Provision has been made in the programme for different levels of enthusiasm and commitment, so that everyone who starts will finish having had the opportunity to progress at their own pace.
Coaching is on Sunday mornings starting promptly at 09h30 and finishing at ±12h30.
Courses run from mid January to end April and again from September to end November each year.
Please note that if the weather is unsuitable for sailing, coaching will take place in a training room.
The coaching sessions include course notes, coaching and coaching boats at a fee of R750.00 per person. Optimist dinghies for the juniors can be chartered at R850.00 per term should you require to hire one.
Please dress warmly, bring your sunblock and hat, gloves, wear a pair of old takkies that you won’t mind getting wet and bring a change of clothing in the event of you getting wet when launching the boats and when sailing. If you have your own lifejacket please bring it along but if not we will provide you with one.
Rowing is also available you are invited to come to the Club as early as you wish as there are rowers out rowing from 06h00 onwards. When they come off the water they come and enjoy hot coffee, tea, muffins and snacks which are available from our tuck shop on Sunday’s. Lunches are on sale from our galley to be enjoyed indoors, or as a picnic on the lawns. The swimming pool is there for all members.
