By popular demand, we will be running for the first time this year an RMYC Keelboat Crew course. Aimed in particular at the newer members of the club, the course will be a short series of evening classes followed by practical training through the season in all three classes of our boats. It will cover the parts of the boat, basic knots, preparation for racing and the typical crew duties in trimming the sails, tacking, gybing, operating the spinnaker, picking up a mooring and packing up the boat. Evening Classes will begin on Wednesday 30 May and continue on the following two Wednesdays. The course will be available at £30 to members with a special offer for those signing up at the PTBO.
