Why not come and HAVE-A-GO on a ‘Slurp’?
The HAVE A GO days we’ve run so far have been very successful in sharing the excitement and challenge of the IC ‘Slurp’ One Design. Mainly because it gives all who attend the opportunity to try it in an enjoyable environment.
What you get from us
Once the Covid-19 pandemic is over, we will welcome you to West Kirby Sailing Club. Bring your own sailing kit and we'll provide a fully operational Slurp for a small charge to cover refreshments. Depending on tides and weather the start time might be quite early so you may need to find some overnight accommodation for the night before.
The day itself will look something like the following:
- Introduction to WKSC, facilities, expectations, timetable
- About each other: sailing experience, racing experience, expectations
- Looking at an IC
- Afloat session 1
- Classroom session with video, debrief from the morning afloat session.
- Afternoon afloat session
- Afternoon refreshments
- Classroom debrief
- Go home
If there's interest, 2 day courses are also a possibility.
Please note that while there will be no charge for using the Slurp, if you break things you will be expected to contribute to repair/replacement costs!!
If you’re interested in doing something like this at your club and would help us arrange the day or would like to come up and see us at West Kirby Sailing Club and meet the rest of the fleet, it would be great to hear from you, just contact us.
