Spring Coaching 2016 – Restarts this week!

The Windy Winter is over, time to get sailing fit for those lovely warm summer months of messing about in boats ahead in 2016!

Starting on Sunday the weather promises to be calm and sunny so if you haven’t registered for Spring coaching now is your chance to register for the next 4 Sundays.  NYC has just taken delivery of nine new Kayaks which will be launched for the first time on Sunday so parents bring your wet or dry suits and try them out with the juniors! Hot chocolate will be served to anyone sailing or kayaking.

Baltimore Training Week 2016

The Iodai Baltimore training week took place during the mid term week with 14 families from the NYC attending.

Out of over 138 sailors aged between 7 and 14 were there eighteen sailors were from the NYC. The NYC group was one of the largest participating with sailors in all fleets.

The sailors had 4 and a half days of sailing with mixed conditions and great racing. International and Irish coaches provided a full range of training, from first time Regatta fleet level through to Transition and to Main Fleets both Junior and Senior with a Regatta on the last day.

The NYC is running 3 instructors’ revalidation workshops on Saturday 20th, Sunday 21st February and on Saturday 12th March.

We will update around Easter time with specific clinics but we hope to run the full suite of ISA levels over each two week course (Start Sailing, Basic Skills, Improving Skills, Racing, Advanced Boat handling, Adventure, Kites and Wires)

NEW! : This year, we will also be offering a teenage introductory course in Course 1 or 2  where you will learn to sail with other teenagers in the ventures, wayfarers or 1720s.  This is ideal for new members or older siblings of some of our young sailors.

Please note there will not be any sailing course on the first week in July as the Volvo Dun Laoghaire week is July 6-9th
