Better Sailing (BS1)


The BS1 course runs for 8 weeks on successive Sundays.

The BS1 (Introductory Module) is open to kids 8-14 years old who have successfully completed the SS1 & 2 Course or have the equivalent skill level. The course is intended for kids that would like to know what club racing is all about before looking at joining the Race Group.

The course will cover:

  • Procedures & Starts
  • Course Layouts
  • Rules of Racing
  • Starting Strategies
  • Upwind Racing
  • Downwind Racing
  • Aerodynamics & Sail Trimming

This course is only available to club members as club membership is a prerequisite of interclub racing.

If you have completed the SS Course you will be able to enrol in the next BS Course as this group gets first priority on the club boats. As a volunteer club all members are expected to assist in the running of the club. It might be a couple of days a season in the canteen, patrol boat driver, race scribe or boat crew.
