Hi Mike,

As you know, Catherine and I are looking forward to attending the training you're kindly organising. As for objectives, I think we'd appreciate some help with the dance steps & best procedures for tacking, gybing, trapezing and kite flying - so that it becomes less stressy & messy.

Hi Mike

Mark and I plan to be there and would happily sail with less experienced sailors if that would be useful. Also could bring along my video camera (as I did at Cardiff) for some after sailing analysis if there is a suitable TV/screen.

Well done for organising this, it should be a very useful week-end.

Best wishes
Jane

Hi

A big thanks to Mike for arranging a very successful training session with Stuart and Zoe, and to his wife and to all those who helped on and off the water from the Seafarers Sailing Club, and also to those who turned up for the training every one seemed to enjoy it and I think most will have slept well last night following the challenging conditions on Sunday which resulted in numerous capsizes. We look forward to seeing you all at the Nationals in September. . .

If any one else is interested in training please post a note.

Happy sailing
Jane

Hi Mike

We had a brilliant time -

Thanks to you and your wife, Jane, as well as all the willing volunteers from the Seafarers sailing club who made us so welcome moving our boat about for us up and down the beach, and always ready with a hot drink the moment we came ashore.

Thanks also to Zoe and Stuart, Jane and Mark as well for all the advice and encouragement - we are new to the Buzz (and any asymetric for that matter) so picked up loads of useful tips. We just need to incorporate them into our sailing now, which might be a bit more of a challenge.

Best wishes

Tris and Mark
