Dinghy Instructors .
We run RYA beginner dinghy courses every year lead by our pricipal, John Ledger but he needs more dinghy instructors to help him if this is to be sustained . It can be a lot of fun teaching folk to sail and this is the future of our club. Could you be a dinghy instructor? If you can sail then you could receive DI training . We would like to host an RYA dinghy instructor course soon. If you feel you could be trained and help your club in thsi way please contact Nicky Leech sailing secretary or John Ledger.
Young sailors from around the north east of England gathered at Derwent Reservoir Sailing club on Saturday 22 October to compete in the RYA (Royal Yachting Association) North East Regional Youth and Junior Championships.
Running in tandem with the youth and junior championships were the inaugural RYA North East Ladies Championships.
Competitors for both events were greeted by leaden skies and fickle easterly winds which made sailing difficult and unpredictable. The greatest skill was to be in the right place within the fleet to maximise the wind shifts when they came. Experience paid off and the consistent performances of the fleet winners showed their ability to read the breeze and make it all look like plain sailing.
