Booking for the Junior Open Training at Oxford is now open.

Our group of sailors who attended the Welsh Championships had a great weekend and our second weekend of training is to be held on 14th/15th July at Oxford Sailing Club. Following on from the observations our coaches made at Cardiff the main theme of the weekend will be race starts and first beat strategy. Participation in major events may be something relatively new to you or it may be that you are looking to improve your ranking position this year and this training is suitable for all sailors interested in developing techniques, improving race sailing and, ultimately, reaching your personal goals. With the British Nationals only being a few weeks after this event this is a perfect time to hone your skills before participation at Plas Heli.

Please note that places will be limited on a first come first served basis and in order to participate you must have taken part in an optimist regatta/event in main fleet. There will be a sailor contribution to this weekend of £80 per sailor (travel and accommodation are not included) and your place can be booked by emailing

Please apply for your Junior Open Training Oxford weekend place by Wednesday 4th July 2018. If you are unable to do this or have any other questions please do contact me.

We do hope that you will be able to take part in this superb opportunity to help develop your sailors skills and provide you with valuable racing techniques for now and the future.
