  • Those who want opportunities to progress their skills to compete in Keelboat races or regattas
  • Use of Club Owned Equipment

With 12 sessions spread across the Winter season, the program provides the fundamental skills as well as the opportunity to progress to stage two of our Women’s Keelboat Development Program.
