Training and Development Events

  • From time to time there will be club sponsored/club run training and development events. If any charge is to be made, that will be made known in the pre-event publicity.
  • Such events could be aimed at club members or sometimes at outsiders (potential new members, schools, colleges etc) with the course content covering various aspects of helming and/or crewing.

The club will be offering a Sailing with Spinnakers course (on 707s) in the early summer, run by Ramsay Leuchars, who is an RYA Keelboat Race Coach Level 2. This Sailing with Spinnakers course will cover all aspects of downwind sailing, covering hoists/drops and gybing, enjoying the fun and speed of spinnaker sailing. The pre-requisites for taking part in this course is RYA Level 3 or equivalent experience. The course will have a maximum of 10 people, and is open to all PEYC members. The course will run over the weekend of 21 & 22 July 2018, with arrival at 09:30 for a 10:00 start and a 16:30 finish on both days. The cost for the course will be £50 per person for the weekend.
