Junior Winter Training

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmail0688_stdDear Juniors and Parents, We have a fantastic entry of over 50 NYC juniors for the winter coaching programme and while the 1st day was curtailed by 45 knot winds, we look forward to some great training and sailing over the next few weeks. To better facilitate the participation of our juniors in the combined racing/training with the RStGYC and RIYC juniors on Sunday mornings, we have decided to bring forward the Sunday Winter training by 2 hours. For the next 5 Sundays until 6th December, the training programme will now run from 9.30 to 14.00. While this change may not suit some , we believe that it will give our juniors a better and more efficient programme. Boats must be fully rigged and participants be changed and ready for briefing at 9.30 with a 10.00 launch for the 10.30 race start. Participants can expect to remain afloat until 13.30 so should bring a substantial snack (sandwich, energy bars, etc) and a drink afloat with them. May we also remind you that you must also be suitably dressed for the cold conditions – Gloves, hats and suitable booties are mandatory and several layers under wetsuits or dry suits are recommended. For those Juniors who are not ready to race, there will be coaching provided for them whilst racing is taking place. The Coaching programme on Sat 7th and 21st November will run from 11.30 to 4 as previously notified. IF you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to address them to Best regards, The Junior Committee
