Cadet Update - 27 September 2014

Dear Cadets and Cadet Parents

Last Weekend (20 September)

Sailing last Saturday at the club was challenging given the light winds winds.  However this gave the 9 Cadet boats a chance to practice their upwind sailing technique, tacking and starting under the expert guidance of Andrew Wallace and Sophie Goodrich.  Of particular note was Fran who won the match racing mini series. All tacking improved considerably and a visible difference was made to their upwind sailing.

Inland Championships (20th & 21st Sept) - Graham Water

The Cadet Inlands were held last weekend and we had 3 SCSC boats enter in a field of 48 boats. Stiff competition amongst the Gold and SIlver fleet so well done to our cadets. The final results were:

Aliya & Aqil - 12th

Harry & Alice - 29th

Felix & Jack -  48th

The full results can be found here.

This Weekend (27th September) - Autumn Trophy Race Day - 2 of 2

RYA Powerboat Level 2  (10-12 Oct)

SCSC have a course running on Fri 10 - Sun 12 Oct - the Friday is 7pm - 9pm for some ground school. Please rember this is a prerequesite for the DI and Race Coach qualifications. The cost to members is only £95  and there are currently only 3 people booked on it so plenty of space available.

A Cadet table top sale is to be held on Sat 11th Oct. I suggest a selling fee of 10% with a max £5 per family selling items payable to the Cadet Squadron on the day.
