Over the weekend of 24th/25th February 2018 Beaver SC hosted the RYA Feva North/Midlands Zone Squad Training.
There were six participating boats and crews. Thankfully again for a winter session the winds were moderate to light although on occasion a gust would send these plucky young sailors into the icy waters. Fortunately with modern gear (drysuits etc) they did not seem phased by their dips and nothing a hot drink back at the clubhouse couldn’t fix. Bright sunshine gave an illusion of warmth.
As expected with squad training they were put through their paces with plenty of race starting practice and races around a windward leeward course. From the smiling faces seen all seemed to have enjoyed their experience.
Beaver wishes these future prospects all the success they deserve in their sailing development.
