ortishead Yacht and Sailing Club cadets enjoyed an outing to Portishead Quays Marina to practice their skills.
Portishead Yacht and Sailing Club (PYSC) cadets had an outing to Portishead Quays Marina.
This was an ideal opportunity for the cadets to practice skills learnt over the summer at Portishead Lake Grounds.
Due to siltation at the venue, the boats often run aground and it is not possible to practice capsize drills, so the cadets made the most of deeper water to practice those all important capsize drills.
Thanks go to all who helped with transporting boats to the marina and the staff at the marina for their assistance.
The season is nearing an end and if you have children who may be interested in learning to sail next year, keep an eye on our www.pysc.org.uk/new/cadets.php
Saturday and Sunday saw a total of 26 boats take to the water at Sugar Loaf beach, nine new members went afloat with experienced club members, all of whom came ashore with big grins as they had had a great time afloat.
