We’ve had an incredible season at QMSC and we hope you have enjoyed getting out on the water developing your sailing skills. Now that the nights are drawing in it’s time for us to look forwards to the winter and our Youth Winter Training Programme.
We are excited to release our Winter Windsurfing Squad and would love all of you to become a part of this. Many of you have been showing your continued interest in Windsurfing, not only at Queen Mary but across the region and even some of you representing the country abroad. Our Winter Windsurfing will be one day per month and available to those of you who are Stage 3 and above; looking to keep progressing your skills throughout the winter. The focus will be enjoyment, whilst learning new skills along the way! It would be fantastic to have you along for the ride so if you are interested then please get involved and keep the buzz going!
Winter Dinghy Training:
This year sees the return of our popular Laser Coaching led once more by Andy Kerr, running for five sessions on a mixture of Saturdays and Sundays throughout the winter. These sessions are aimed at honing your Laser sailing technique and will look at rigging, tuning, boat handling and some racing. We will also be running Topper/Tera training on five Saturdays from November-March. Run by senior QM instructors, these sessions are aimed at sailors looking to do more sailing specifically in these boats, who are potentially keen to start looking at racing in the Topper or Tera circuits. For the first time this year we are offering winter training in RS Fevas. A fun and dynamic double hander – this boat is seeing rapid growth in training and racing throughout the Western Hemisphere. If you’d like to sail with a friend this course is for you! We will look at boat handling, including sailing with spinnakers, as well as preparing you to start racing in Fevas. Please note in order to join this session you will need to hold a RYA Stage 4 certificate as a minimum.
