Junior Update

Following the successful re-formation of an optimist Junior Sailing fleet in 2011, Carlingford Sailing Club is launching the 2015 season of their optimist Junior Sailing Programme. Last year with the partnership of Carlingford Sail Training we were delighted to introduce the Topaz for the advanced Juniors. The aim of the programme is to make sailing as affordable as possible to as many junior members as possible in the 8 to 15 year age range. We had an extremely successful year 2014 with an average of 27 Sailors taking part every Saturday with a member list of 56. Our aim is to continue to improve and encourage new juniors each year to enjoy fun on the water.

After completing the initial year and partaking in the ISA Sail Training Weeks Junior members are encouraged to participate in a more structured schedule to include racing during Saturday Sailing to show off their skills learned the previous year. This will hopefully begin at the end of May when they have settled in. We are also introducing a number of juniors to partake in some open events this year with other clubs. We are looking to work towards a new Junior Sailing Club house. We were very fortunate last year with the warm summer, however ideally we want a club house for the juniors to be able to use during our not so fortunate summers for class instruction. There will be a number of events organised this year when we will welcome your support to raise funds to enable this to happen in 2016.
