Tidal Training on the South Coast, Calshot, Hampshire, 12th – 14th May 2017. This event has now finished, and at least one write-up is anticipated – watch this space.

The weekend was a great success; Calshot proved to be an excellent venue and the weather co-operated well, all of which makes it highly likely that another similar event will be organised next year.

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 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.
