The pictures below show some of the activity when the dinghies were relatively stationary and without rain. Due to covid we were operating reduced crew often helm only coach and safety boats, hence camera work was a challenge.
Well done to all those who attended the course , all received their level IV qualification and may go on to become assistant instructors.
Some of the youth dinghies also managed to compete in the club Sat afternoon dinghy races.
