After four greatly successful taster sessions, Brunel Sailing is definitely now up and running with its new members of the sailing family. The sessions saw both freshers and older members getting out on the boats and taking part in brief races and team building activities, as well as getting familiar with all the sailing basics like knots, wind and boats. So far, the wind has been consistently good, sometimes daringly so, and everyone has been getting nicely wet at least once a week! It has been a load of fun already and it only promises to get better.
This last weekend, two of our beloved Brunel Sailing instructors, Dom and Ozzy, got 13 of
the club’s new members qualified with a Level 1 in the RYA Sailing Scheme, which is a
worldwide recognised qualification. It is possibly the most freshers we have had qualified
this soon in the year, and at least half of them will be going onto Level 2 this coming
weekend. With the racing season dawning, this is very exciting news, so expect to hear more from all these competent sailors in-the-making this year at Brunel!
