The weather wasn’t too pleasant on Sunday but a nice Northerly wind and the presence of half a dozen Thames Raters formed an inspiring backdrop for the first session of our start racing course.
After signing off two more stage 4 students, a mornings on shore training covered  types of races, Start procedures and some more advanced sailing techniques whilst the Raters ploughed on through an absolute cloudburst.
An on the water session later covered practise starts, mark rounding and (for some) rapid capsize recovery.
Next Sunday is the Trafalgar Trophy pursuit race which we will be encouraging students to participate in as well as signing off as many log books as possible .
