Wednesday Night Talks on Sailing

Our series of Tynemouth Sailing Club winter talks has been planned – and we will be holding them on a Wednesday at 8.00 p.m. for no more than an hour. See below for the program (and in the calendar shortly) & other events pre-season.

Although four of the talks are aimed at “Lasers” much of the content will be applicable to other boats as well. They will be aimed at those who have started sailing relatively recently and will not be “expert” although we plan to show some of the coaching DVDs. THere may be a couple of additons to the programme below. We hope  to see a good number of you for the talks and afterwards at the bar, as well as at other events.
