Our new Sailing Secretary, Ben Jones has been working with the Improver group and Adur Sailing Club to identify ways to develop our Junior membership and offer a better pathway to develop their skills and improve integration with club racing.
To make this happen we are offering three days of joint activities and need the help and commitment of club members to ensure that they can happen and are fun for everyone taking part.
We do hope that you can see the value in and importance of these activities and that you will all volunteer your support now so that we can plan properly and make them a success. And FUN. Please email Ben (firstname.lastname@example.org) to offer assistance and confirm attendance for any of these events.
