Sailing well in a large fleet of competitive dinghy sailors can be a lifelong challenge. J-Towners know the importance of building our fleet through shared knowledge. The instructors are some of our top racers who have lots to teach you wherever you are at.
Every Monday night, we run training sessions which improve sailing and racing skills. Anyone who has completed CanSail2 or equivalent is encouraged to come to these sessions where everyone from very experienced racing helms to the freshest CanSail2 graduate can learn a lot about sailing well.
The session starts with a short introduction on what we are going to work on this week depending on the weather and who is instructing, and ends with a debrief on what people have learned and for questions. In between we run practice drills and mini-races, pairing the less experienced with experienced helms who have lots of knowledge to pass on to you. Expect to crew if you are new at these sessions. Learn from the best! The hope is you will catch the racing bug, starting by crewing in Friday night races, but those who just want to improve their skills will also find the sessions very useful.
No sign up required just come to the club at 6pm on a Monday night.
