    Ever wondered what it's really like racing across the Atlantic?

    Club Member, Matt Thomas will be sharing his experience of life aboard the WTC Logistics Clipper Race boat. He'll tell all; from what motivated him to enter, the training, preparations, equipment, daily life aboard a Clipper Racer, what goes on when they reach port and of course the actual sailing!

    Matt will be cooking and serving two dishes from the boat menu, a choice of Sesame Chicken or Pasta e Fagioli (vegan), both will be served with homemade bread and followed by desert. The bar will also be open, we'll be serving wine and beer.

    Tickets for the evening are £5 per person and include food, the event is open to all members and guests.

    All profits from the evening will be split between the Club and Unicef, the official charity of the Clipper Race.

    This Dinghy Sailing course is designed to follow the RYA "Start Sailing" and "Basic Skills" (Levels 1 & 2) Adult syllabus. 

    On successful completion of this course you will be able to sail a dinghy in any direction and rig and launch in moderate weather conditions. The RYA Level 2 certificate is an Internationally recognised sailing qualification and an indication that the holder has a basic level of understanding and practical competency.

    The syllabus covers practical sessions such as rigging, launching and recovery, sailing techniques and manoeuvres, ropework and capsize recovery. Background theory includes subjects such as "rules of the road", basic meteorology, clothing and equipment and emergency equipment.

    Tuition is given by trained and qualified RYA dinghy instructors with an emphasis on safety and fun! There will be Safety Powerboats on the water at all times to ensure your safety afloat.

    The course will be run over 2 Thursday evenings and 2 weekends to give you maximum time to fulfill the requirements of the syllabus. It is really important that you can attend ALL of the practical and theory sessions as it is not guaranteed we can help you catch up with things missed.

    ANNUAL AWARDS CEREMONY at around 1pm where we will be handing out the club's race trophies, cups and other awards for the 2019 year.

    The first race of the 2020 season is a one-hour 'Buoyancy Day Race' which will start at 2pm. A great opportunity to meet members new and old and for us all get together for a trip round the buoys... and hopefully back again. The race winner will win the Knotford Noggin Cup!


    Look forward to seeing you there!
