The club has planned for and is seeking your family support for the club to train juniors, towards the Honda RYA Youth RIB 2018 championship. We will run a club heat with Ages 8-12 and 13-16 years.
Perhaps you are not aware of the event and its structure so using the links below you will see its outline and full information.
The club have previously prepared youth for this competition. A young Feckis and a young Wright both gained placings but that is in club history now. We have not entered in recent years, due to a very active early season. This year (2018) will be different.
The plan to advance this project has evolved – coming down to training in April and early May – weekly . (both formal and informal sessions)
Below is early planning and information for you.
If you and your family want to be involved let the club know. Early contact via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact David Maxwell
and then please put these dates in your calendar if your family members wish to train and compete (Times 18:30 to 20:30). Parental support, involvement and assistance will be very welcome.
