Mid-Term Team Racing Clinic – Monday 17th & Tuesday 18th February 2020

Dear Parents

Please find below the link to the upcoming Team Racing clinic being held in RIYC over the midterm break.  This is an Irish Sailing supported initiative and as such is offered at the remarkable price of €25 for the 2 days of training.

The clinic is open to anyone who has a competent level of sailing experience.  It would be most suitable for sailors who have attained Irish Sailing Level 3, or equivalent,  and who are working through the modules of Level 4.  Everyone is welcome, it is an open clinic and not exclusively for club members.  

So, if your sailor has a friend who has sailed elsewhere and is keen to learn team racing, then they are very welcome!  If your school is entering any of the upcoming inter schools team racing competitions,  this would be of particular interest to them and is a perfect way for them to get vital time on the water, learning from qualified instructors!

Please follow the link below to book your place:
