Chilly Weekend For Our Juniors

It may be the depths of winter with frosty mornings and bitterly cold winds but three of our juniors were out sailing this weekend with the Southwest Youth Sailing Academy (SWYSA).

This was the fourth in a series of eight weekend training sessions, but despite the sub zero windchill over forty children, parents, dinghies, safety boats all rolled up early on Saturday morning.   What was originally planned to be held at Sutton Bingham, was rescheduled to Paignton Sailing Club due to the favourable conditions. 

The theme for this weekend was all about team racing. The sailors learnt how to hold and defend their positions while looking at ways to overtake.

All the juniors did very well especially on Saturday morning as it was incredibly cold in the wind. They sailed two sessions both days with plenty of racing. 

Sunday morning was perfect sailing with clear skies, a steady breeze and flat sea conditions.
