Sandringham Yacht Club invites you to participate our Laser Training Squad.
Our Laser Training Squads are designed to help sailors transition into the Laser class or to continue in their skills development and racing. The intermediate laser training squad is ideal if you are regularly racing and would like to continue to improve your skills. The beginner laser training squad is ideal if you are new to the class or new to sailing in general and are not yet completely confident in completing races unassisted.
We would like to encourage all Laser sailors to join us in this program. There are no restrictions on age, sail size or ability, every sailor is welcome.
Squads will have a maximum of 6 sailors per coach and are open to members and non-members. You will need to own your own Laser to participate but we are happy to help point you in the right direction to purchasing your own laser. If you would like to join the club and also store your boat you can view membership information here and boat storage here.
Training Squads require a minimum of 3 sailors to run, if we do not have the numbers to run we will contact you with alternative options.
A seaworthy boat* & appropriate clothing & safety gear. Including sunscreen, sunglasses, hat, sailing shoes or boots and your lifejacket.
- Appropriate boat insurance
A notebook & pen for onshore coaching, rules discussions etc.
A real desire to improve your sailing skills and have fun doing it!
IMPORTANT: Be rigged and ready by commencement time of each session.
