The RYA Windsurfing North/Midlands Zone Squad Training tookplace at Beaver SC on the weekend of 9th/10th December 2017.
Due to the forecast snow on Sunday 10th the organisers decided to hold only the Saturday session. Despite the RYA’s preference that sessions be completed in all weather, the view this time was to ensure that no-one was put at risk when travelling.
Conditions on Saturday were generally good with light to moderate winds but very low temperatures. Water temperature was undoubtedly icy and these brave young participants deserve all credit for taking part.
Best wishes at your next meet.
From the RYA site:
Generally the RYA policy is to run zone squad weekends whatever the weather given the coaches have plenty of material to cover if it is unsuitable to go afloat. Should we cancel a weekend it is quite possible that we will be unable to re-schedule due to the logistics of reorganising weekends . (Clubs, sailors, coaches, Class calendars and RIBS etc
