OPPIE GROUP TRAINING 2015

The CYC Oppie fleet continues to go from strength to strength, great progress having been made by all with many sailors now regularly participating in club racing, travelling to Open Meetings with some selected for places in the prestigious National and Zone squads. We would like to continue to encourage the fleet as a whole to get a taste for racing and experience enjoyable confident sailing in our beautiful harbour.

Our sessions, coached by RYA Instructors will aim to help the transition from coaching to club racing and provide a fun and challenging format to build confidence and improve skills at all levels.

Sailors joining the Oppie Group should have the ability to sail confidently around a triangular course in most weather conditions.

Beginners also have the opportunity to gain their RYA Stage 1, 2 & 3 through the CYC RTC programmes, please see the clubs 2015 Training Brochure or contact the office.

To begin the 2015 season an Easter Training Week is planned offering full day sessions. This week will be an exciting mix of training, racing and fun water and shore based activities. The dates are Monday 6th - Friday 10th April. Parents must remain on site and be responsible for their children during all the sessions and we actively encourage all parents to get involved!

Throughout the spring and summer Optimist training at weekends are held to improve boat handling, boat speed, develop race techniques and learn the racing rules - see below for dates.

Throughout the spring and summer, coached sessions to improve boat handling, boat speed, develop race techniques and learn the racing rules, will be held at weekends, see below for dates.

We also plan to have sail-away days to East Head or Dell Quay.

2013 saw an exciting development with the introduction of two Oppie Summer Race Series, running alongside club racing and with a dedicated Optimist start line. These races have a coach boat for support and encouragement for those new to racing.

As this is a voluntary, parent led group that will support the instructors, the parents must remain on site and be responsible for their children during all the sessions and we actively encourage all parents to get involved!
