Aberdeenshire Sailing Trust
Race Training 2017
We run Race Training Saturdays, Easter and October two day clinics, Race training evenings at Loch of Skene
and Class specific race training (e.g. lasers). The latter two are open to any ages.
In addition North and East Scotland
Sailing has a junior winter race training programme running at Clubs in the NESS area. Sometimes these clubs will
have boats available for those who don't have / can't transport their own boat. More details available via the North And
East Scotland Sailing Facebook page.
RYA Scotland also run race training for all ages in pathway classes via their Class Academy
programme. Details here: RYA Scotland
Tips for staying warm for Easter and October Race training:
Wear a warm hat (that stays on when windy!)
trousers over your wetsuit will keep the wind off you and so keep you cosier.
Think about thermal rashtops / thermal layers with your
Winter sailing gloves may also help.
And finally if you are planning on sailing more through the winter- a 5mm westuit or a
drysuit with wooly bear underneath will make a big difference to your comfort and happiness!
