Tidal Training Sailing Weekend – October 3rd/4th 2015

Tidal Training1

This is an event aimed at Wayfarer owners and crew who are relatively new to the sport or to sailing on tidal waters. You will bring your own boat or be placed in another suitable delegate’s boat and have an experienced instructor assigned to you for the weekend. There will be at least 3 hours on the water instruction, plus ‘classroom’ input to hone your skills. A very popular part of last events has been the boat clinic where advice and assistance in tuning, set-up, etc was given. The precise programme can be tailored to fit your particular needs.

Tidal Training2

The venue is situated on the beautiful North Norfolk coast. Brancaster Staithe is situated on the A149 east of Hunstanton. We will all be staying at The Granary group hostel at Burnham Deepdale, which is less than a mile from The Hard (www.deepdalefarm.co.uk).

Tidal Training3

The event is early October. The weather may be brilliant, but be prepared for cold and wet. Bring lots of layers. We will be covering a range of sailing techniques – anchoring, reefing, tacking and gybing, heaving to, weather and lee shore landing and launching. Plus indoors explanations of tidal sailing, passage planning, etc
