“707 Club” Training

Hi, my name is Rachel Alvarado, I run the PEYC training programme along with the help of other keen club members. “707 Club” is a place to muck about in 707’s, make mistakes and build skills in a safe environment. Sessions run on Weekends from mid September to mid December, and on Thursday nights from late April till early September. The club owns two 21 ft Hunter 707  keelboats named Apollo and Baltika, we use these for training along with the club RIB for safety cover.  Up to 8 people can take part and myself (or other experienced club members) are there to offer guidance, instruction or just safety cover depending on what you need. It’s a great way to meet other people who also want to sail 707’s. You sign up on a week to week basis on the booking page of this website, for as many or as few sessions as you like, and you can practice anything you want. People practice stuff like getting in and out of the marina, coming alongside and berthing, reefing, man overboard, anchoring, boat handling, sailing upwind efficiently, flying spinnakers, just going for a nice sail under the bridges and being in sole charge of a boat. We decide at the start of the session what we will do depending on the weather, tide and people sailing. Sessions are for club members but you can come up to three times to try us out before you join the club. To join is £70 race member/ £50 cruise member in your first year. If you want to come along and you haven’t met me before then please send me an email with a bit about you and your sailing level. If you have come before just go ahead and book online.
