    Fun Fridays are a period of social sailing with rescue boat cover which is available to all club members. Fun Fridays are proving very popular and are often fully booked fully very quickly.

    The sessions are limited to those people who have booked and all places must be booked on the website regardless of whether or not you are using your own boat. The session numbers are controlled in order that the club can provide sufficient and appropriate safety cover. It is of course appropriate for anyone with their own boat to sail whenever they like, but the rescue cover will be there for those signed up to take part in the Fun Friday session.

    Bookings open 7 days before the Fun Friday session for example Friday 27 May will be available to book from Friday 20th May. The reason for making people book each week is to try and provide opportunities for more people to be able to take part.

    We will ONLY accept the person  that is booked for the session, we will not accept substitutions unless previously agreed through
    training@elyc.org.uk. If there are any cancellations they will be made available on a first served basis through the website. If you are unable to make the session please email training@elyc.org.uk. ASAP and we will endeavour to make your place available to others. We do not hold a waiting list.

    There is a small charge of £3 per person to take part in Fun Fridays, and this includes use of a club boat if required. You will be expected to have passed your RYA Stage/Level 2 and to be able to sail to this standard, although those running the session will try to help out, if somebody is struggling they may be returned to shore.

    Novice Racing will be held on the Thursdays when there is already club racing taking place and will consist of a Novice Start which may be around a separate novice course or around a shortened version of the full course for the evening.  There will be no tuition.  Booking will now be open 14 days before the event.  Starting time will be 19:30 on the water. 

    Either use your own boat, or club boats are for hire for £3 per person per session. 

    The reason for booking is to ensure that sufficient rescue cover is provided and the sessions remain safe.
