Epic Open Day

What an EPIC Open Day it was on Sunday!

Not a single drop of rain, lots of kids and adults out sailing together in the dinghies and a bouncy castle on shore!

With the wind and weather being in our favor we had lots of fun sailing and meeting new friends!

We started at 10am and worked up a big appetite for the Sausage sizzle and the club restaurants delicious Sunday Roast. After a short rest and some bouncy castle action it was time for more sailing! Everyone sailed until the tide was out and there was no drop of water left!

If you couldn’t join us last Sunday give us a call and we will still get you out sailing!

Now enjoy the photos!

Nice Beginning

Here a few shots from last weekends Stage 1 beginners course –

these guys were doing so well!

 

Mission: Sailing Upwind.

I am proud to announce: Mission accomplished!

The Stage 2 course last weekend was a winner – we had wind, we had (almost) no rain aaaaaaand every student sailed upwind!

It was a tough mission to reach that orange mark but everyone made it eventually.
In the end we even had a little race around the triangular course and everyone made it across the finish line.

Congrats guys!

Coming Weekend a Stage 1 Junior course is running so email me and sign up!

Thank you all for the fun (and Peter for the photos!) CSC_0640 DSC_0633 DSC_0635

Kids Under 7 Play Sail

We are holding our first U7 Play Sail!!!

1st June from 9.30-12.00

With the minimum age for our Stage 1 Dinghy sailing at 7yrs we would like to provide a programme for the younger kids.

The idea is to get kids out sailing in a safe environment to give them an experience and let them have fun out on the water.

With one head instructor in a safety boat and a helper for each boat we will take 2-3 kids in the Mirror dinghies.
We will let them have a go at steering and trimming the sails while we engage in games to learn playfully.

We only have 6 spots so sign up quick!

Pricing:
Non ACYC Member – 1500Thb/Kid per session.
ACYC Member – 1200Thb/Kid per session

For any further questions please email us at acycsailschool@gmail.com

Fun Sail Training for Stage 1 Students

We are holding a Fun Sail Training on

2nd June 9.30 – 12.30

This is aimed at people who have (almost) completed the Stage 1 Dinghy course.

Fun Sail Training is supposed to encourage you to practice what you have learnt in Stage 1 in a safe environment.
Before committing to the next course come and practice some more, build confidence and meet some of the other kids that are learning to sail.

The Concept:
We will meet at the Yacht Club at 9.30am to set up the boats together.
Aiming at 2 hours on the water playing games that incorporate the skills they have learnt. Basic mistakes will be corrected but it is not the aim to tutor them but to let them explore and discover for themselves what they have learnt in S1.
Back at the dock by 12pm to tidy away the boats and have a short talk about their experience so we can finish at 12.30pm.

We need a minimum of 4 participants who have completed the Stage 1 course.

Pricing:
Non ACYC Member – 1500Thb/Kid per session.
ACYC Member – 1200Thb/Kid per session

For any further questions please email us at acycsailschool@gmail.com
