Cadet training session at Stone SC kicks off 2012 sailing season

The first Cadet training session of 2012 at Stone SC UK National Cadet Class Association http://www.cadetclass.org.uk
The first Cadet training session of 2012, at Stone Sailing Club, was held on Saturday 28th April. Eighteen eager children arrived at the club keen to get sailing in the 2012 sailing season.

We had seven helms aged between 10 and 13. Most of them had never helmed a Cadet and this was coupled with two experienced and eight inexperienced crew. Two cadets took part in the Laser 4.7 training with Frankie and Georgia. The remaining 16 took part in the Cadet dinghy sailing with Duncan.

The weather couldn’t have been kinder to us it was gorgeous sunshine with a steady force 2. Most of the children looked like they had been helming for years. It was a great start for our training at the club and hopefully these numbers at training will continue to rise through the season. With an early Cadet week this year in June (6th-9th) these children will be racing with the rest before we know it.
