Adult Training - BULS session #7

Dariusz Sadowski  |  07-Jul-2017

Dear All

The next BULS session to take place on 08/07/2017 will be led by Mike Warwicker. Please let us know if you’re planning to come.

A couple of successes from those participating in the BULS since last year – resulted in Dominic L. and David S. sailing their own Lasers now. As the programme is run more frequently – we hope to see many more of you on the water regularly – eg take part in the Thursday evening series or on Sunday afternoon.

Usual Format: opportunity to get out on the water and practice in a structured / coached environment. It is each sailors’ own decision and responsibility to decide if they can handle the conditions on the given day (advice will be provided).

Timings:
1pm - rigging / changing (aim is for all to be able to rig boats on their own)
2pm - aim to launch on the water
3.30-4pm – expect to be back ashore – for de-rigging and de-brief

Costs: free if you use your own boat and £5 for those using club equipment.
