Derk’s W8888 sailing beautifully level, Calshot 2017

The weekend was a great success; Calshot proved to be an excellent venue and the weather co-operated well.

This was a training event aimed at Wayfarer owners and crew who are relatively new to the sport and would benefit from some one-to-one coaching, or are new to sailing on tidal waters.

Participants could choose to bring their own boat or be placed in another delegate’s boat. An experienced instructor was assigned to each boat for the weekend, which included a number of hours on the water, boat clinic and teaching ashore, plus time to relax and chat in the evenings.

Our thanks to the organiser, Matt Sharman.

P.S. John Norman is planning another tidal training event for 2018 – details to follow shortly.
