J80 'Junior Night' this Friday for all junior sailors

27 August 2015

We’re doing it again!  This Friday from 6.30-9.00pm and as a summer sailing finale, we want to have another great night for our junior members sailing together in the ISA J80 keelboats following the popularity of the event in the last two years.

All Junior Members of HYC and summer course participants are invited to come sailing in the ISA J80s next Friday evening. This is a great opportunity for junior sailors to try ‘bigger-boat’ sailing and get to helm, do mainsheet, trim and do the bow on a keelboat.

Two adults will take responsibility for each boat and the juniors will have the opportunity to sail the J80s in a supervised environment.   There will be 3-5 juniors on each boat with the two adults.

If you want to sail on Friday next in a J80 please email:  training@hyc.ie  as soon as possible and before Wednesday 26th so we can register everyone and make all the necessary arrangements.

All parents are also invited to come to HYC on Friday to enjoy the facilities and hospitality of the club while your children are sailing.

Finally- please remember to bring your lifejackets, and suitable clothing for going sailing.  (The club has only a limited supply of lifejackets and oilskins which will be available on the night.)
