Here in Gordons Bay, the Cape Doctor is back and we saw whales in the bay while sailing at Yachties yesterday afternoon, that's a sure sign that summer is just around the corner! We have a busy summer sailing season this year with a variety of opportunities for you to get your feet wet and feel the wind on your cheeks as your dinghy powers across the water.
Over the winter months The Academy has embarked on a race training campaign. Our novice crews have had three weekends classroom and on-the-water training, including 22 short course "quick-fire" races and the Barts Bash race. Five crews participated in the first Southern Charter Classic Regatta at Zeekoe Vlei at the end of August with great success.
Sailing Academy Racing Squad
Our racing crews have been training hard for the second Southern Charter Classic Regatta to be held on the weekend of the 2nd & 3rd December at Theewater. As this is our home regatta, we will be entering all seven Topaz Race X dinghies. The regatta will be a great spectacle, with an estimated 140 boats competing across a variety of classes over the two days. Keep this weekend open to come and support the Academy and TSC racing crews.
New Season - Fresh Sailing Ideas
During the months of October and November we will be presenting some new and exiting sailing opportunities...
Day sailing options
We have noted that some people find it difficult to get away for the entire weekend to come sailing. To accommodate this, we are introducing a day sailing option to our fun filled sailing weekends, allowing you to sail on either the Saturday or the Sunday, or on both days, if your circumstance allows. On the two weekends below, come sailing at R595 per day or R995 for the weekend, all ages & sailing abilities welcome, restaurant & bar facilities available.
