Junior Cadet Week
Junior Cadet Week (for 8 to 11 year olds) has been the starting point for so many of our sailors for so long now. This is a great week to learn to sail and to form friendships that will keep going forever. Ever since Robert Holbrook introduced the Optimist to Seaview in the 1980s this course has been a winner!
Its not just Opis this week though; the new kid on the block, the RS Tera is building momentum for those who have grown too large for their old Opi, as well as Picos, Fevas and Visions.
Beginners learn on the Duver in the shallows with the Instructor wading around in the water next to them.
There are lots of land drills and games to try and make the sessions as fun as possible and reducing the tiredness factor which badly affects motivation if not kept in check. Instructor Ratios will be 1:3 as a maximum for beginners.
Racing groups will have a busy schedule involving all aspects of racing, including mock protests, to get them ready to campaign for the rest of the season. The usual mix of coaching, land drills, video analysis and just racing all help to hone their skills.
A Disco on Thursday night is the most popular social event in the training calendar and needs to be seen to be believed! On Friday a parents race in Opis followed by prize giving round off the week.
