Briefing is at 10:00 – Rigged AND changed please!

Training during the winter months is a fantastic way to prepare for the new season and get ahead of the opposition. However, do please remember that the water WILL be cold, and in all likelihood, despite global warming, so will the air. Wear the right gear and you’ll have a great day on the water and come in feeling invigorated. Don’t wear enough or the wrong type of clothing and you’ll likely come in cold, wet and miserable, very quickly. Don’t ruin your day, make sure you have got an adequate winter wet-suit or dry-suit. Thermal layers, hats, hotsocks, winter gloves etc are all an absolute must. Click here to read a useful article on the Rooster blog about winter clothing and layering. You don’t have to buy Rooster, other brands are available. You can also often pick up kit in really good condition from others. Ask around the sailing club, kids do have a habit of growing quickly. Also pass your kit on to others to help keep costs down. There are dinghy groups on Facebook where you can often buy cheap kit, and you can sometimes find a bargain on eBay etc.
