The central location, weather conditions that are usually forgiving enough to permit winter sailing, and the offer of winter storage have made Lough Ree the popular choice.
Graeme Grant will again be heading up the coaching, aided by Conor Twohig and Sarah White, who have been doing sterling work coaching in their respective clubs.
Graeme will be available, assisted by either Sarah or Conor, on the weekends of 24-15 February, 24-25 March and 21-22 April.
In order for us to be able to manage costs, it will be mandatory to do all three weekends (€210 total per boat payable in advance).
In addition, to the recent influx of bronze fleet sailors, the class intends to use the first training weekend of the winter on 13-14 January to prepare both boats and sailors in order to get the maximum benefit from the following sessions. This weekend, which is not mandatory, will cost €50 per boat.
