Arrow catamaran some great technique and fun speeds are a sure start with this little boat

The Sailing season has kicked off with a great start.  This year the “learn to sail” program has a new component.  The sailing club have bought some small catamarans called arrows.  John Dowling will be assisting with the coaching program this season.  He has many years of catamaran sailing experience.  The smaller size cats are great to start learning the basics that are needed for catamaran sailing, including skipping and trapezing at the same time, tacking and gybing procedures and even rigging options.  

The club welcomes everyone to come and try sailing for 3 Sundays and then when you join the club at very reasonable family rates you can access the club coaching in both catamarans and sailing dinghies including the junior boats called minnows every Sunday during the season.

The coaching program is available for adults and children alike.  Speed boat licensing and rescue boats handling as well course settings are just some of the nautical skills you can learn as a member of Lake Cootharaba Sailing Club.

The club is also holding a special introduction to sailing during the September School holidays on Friday 23rd and Saturday 24th September from 9.30-4pm both days. The 2 days costs $80 which gives children membership for the year then access each Sunday to coaching sessions.  For current members the 2 days only costs $10.
