The first laser clinic of the year! Members must attend all 3 classes. Lightweight students, who's own weight is less than 145 lbs are encouraged to take the Byte training. They will practice sailing the Bytes, but learn how to rig both types of boats.
Each class will include 3 mandatory training sessions. The students must attend all 3 sessions to complete the training and be allowed to sail the club's Lasers and Bytes. The course structure is as follows:
Thursday, July 19, 2018 from 6 pm to 9 pm (No sailing):
Rigging class on lasers
Saturday, July 21, 2018 from 10am to 3pm
Docking, casting off (leaving the dock), basic sailing techniques, capsize recovery.
Sunday, July 22, 2018 from 10 am to 3 pm.
Advanced techniques and intro to racing.
The class will be conducted by Leo Legoshov and Jen Ng.
In the event the course is over booked, there will be a random draw to assign the 4 laser spots and 2 byte spaces. Registration will be closed on July 11th, and the draw will be completed on July 12th.
In the event the course is fully booked and a draw is required. Participants will be required to give the education chair an enrollment deposit cheque of $50 (you will be emailed about this). If you attend all three sessions your cheque will be returned to you, anything else and your cheque will be considered an administrative fee charged by the club. It will be deposited into the clubs bank account with no possibility of refund. This is to prevent any spot in the course not being used. Failure to provide the cheque if required is considered forfeiting of your spot.
Spaces in the course going unused due to lack of commitment and last minute change of plans has been a problem in the past, this is why we are testing this registration procedure. If you sign up, get a spot, and show up this course is FREE!
