Saturday morning Members Mentoring Sessions 2019

Saturday Morning Members’ Mentoring Sessions 2019

Six mentoring sessions will take place during June and July for adult club members with:

  • some knowledge of sailing for adults over eighteen who wish to rekindle their skills
  • lapsed sailors who wish to recover their confidence
  • new members considering which boat to purchase
  • a potential crew who needs more experience, or
  • someone who really wants to see if it is for them!


Each session will be given with experienced and competent club members in a variety of keelboats including Yeoman, Yare and Bure and Broads One Designs and will run between 10.00 am and 12.00 midday for a nominal charge of £10.00 per person, per session.

You will need to bring your own clothing (waterproofs, suitable non slip footwear, warm jumper or fleece etc.) but personal flotation devices can be borrowed from the club.

Booking at least one week in advance is essential as we need to gauge the correct number of boats required for each Saturday morning.

Please contact the office with your completed form and one of our members will be in touch. Further details about the sessions and progression path will then be given to you.
