Tidal Training Weekend Report – Brancaster

Tidal Training Weekend Report – Brancaster

The Tidal Training weekend at Brancaster was fully booked despite a few last minute cancellations and was not only self-financing, but was able to finance the purchase of a flipchart and make a contribution to the purchase of a projector for the Association.

A total of 12 helms and crews braved the balmy November sunshine and southerly winds, being put through their paces by some of the Associations most experienced cruising members.
It has become clear from the past two Tidal Training events that there is a strong demand for basic sailing training from those new to the boat, plus the challenge of sailing in what can be a challenging area.

Skills covered included, basic sailing techniques, reefing, heaving-to, sailing backwards, rudderless, anchoring and picking up buoys, etc.
