Lymington Optimist Winter Training (Main Fleet & Advanced Regatta Fleet)   iCal entry for this event

We are delighted to announce the Lymington Oppies Winter Training Program 2019-2020.

Run by our great team of local and not so local coaches, this will consist of multiple weekends throughout the Winter, bookable individually.

The aim of this program is to develop and reinforce the sailors skills throughout the Winter, coaches working with the sailors to set goals and a plan of how to achieve these.

We will aim for a ratio of 6 sailors to a coach and to place sailors of a similar level together - where possible we will aim for sailors to consistently sail with the same coach and in the same group to aid continuity.

Generally, we will meet at 09:30 for Classroom work, briefing & rigging then on the water for approx 4hrs (11:45 - 15:45) followed by debrief and finished by 16:30/17:00.

 

Parent Helpers

We need parents to help crew safety boats, so experience is required so please expect to be asked to go on the water for 1 in 6 sessions as a minimum - roster to  sign up on will be distributed in due course.

 

Coached Racing

We will also be running some coached race days where sailors will be allocated a coach and compete in a short race series, we also hope to welcome groups from other clubs to these sessions so as to provide more and varied competition - please get in contact if you would like to bring your group to Lymington to join one of these days. 

 

Required Level for Regatta Fleet Sailors

This training is aimed at sailors who have competed in regattas throughout 2019 either in Regatta Fleet up to Main Fleet National Squad Level sailors, as a minimum sailors should be comfortable:

- Sailing in winds of 15kt in the Solent

- Spending up to 4hrs afloat (lunch & toileting afloat)

- Capsizing, righting and bailing their boat without assistance

We will also be running a program of shorter session for less experienced sailors, details of this will be published here soon....

 

Booking 

The process for booking will be as follows:

1) Reserve the dates that you wish to sail across the Winter 2019/2020 here.

2) We will contact you with the amount you need to pay and will ask you to call the RLymYC office in order to process the payment (please don´t call the office to pay until we contact you).

We are using this method to provide the maximum flexibility for people to sail when they want to across the winter, whist allowing us enough time to organise appropriate resources - in the event a date proves not to be viable then we will not change you for it and will keep you informed.  

 

Going for a Squad?

If you are going for a Squad, be it National Squad, Zone Squad or somewhere in between, don´t let that stop you from booking NOW at the early bird price, just indicate which squad(s) you might be likely to go for and book the dates you will want to sail on over the winter even if they clash with a Squad. Then you can secure the early bird price and we will then only ask you to pay for the dates that don´t clash with a possible squad and once your sqaud is known then we will adjust your final balance according to any clashes (deadline for the final payment in this case will be 1st November - and all training sessions must be paid in advance).
