After completing the training courses (or having equivalent sailing experience) the S80 class provides a free Sailor Development Program, which is a series of training programs to assist people, to further develop their sailing skills to be “race-ready” as crew, and also if desired to go on to skipper a sailing boat.
3 on-water sessions in boat handling 4 hours each. Sun Nov 13, 20 & 27th @0800
2 on-water sessions in racing practice with other s80’s 4 hours each: Sun Dec 4 & 11th @0800
Participants must be a member of South of Perth Yacht Club. Crew membership can be arranged with the club which currently offers an Introductory Crew membership and Full Crew Membership.
The program is coordinated by the S80 WA Association, which owns the S80 Grand Piano as a training boat. The coaches are volunteers from the S80 fleet, and other keelboat fleets. There are no formal course fees, however, donations to the S80 Grand Piano Maintenance Fund are most welcome.
Pls advise your Registration of Interest in either or both of the above courses and/or for more info contact: Mark Gooding 041 9921095;
