What do you need?
All participants must be able to swim 50m confidently. You need to have completed at least, a learn to sail course and become a competent sailor for graduation to trapeze and spinnaker. Be focused on skill development to sail in the National contest 2019. Enroll and pay the fees before the first day of the course. As well as completing the parental consent below.
It is hoped that sailors will sail their own boats generally during the season, however, a TRIYA 420 may be chartered by course members for the course. Replacement of lost spinnaker poles, repairs to spinnakers and damage due to mistreatment or negligence, (eg Damage caused by Sailing without rudder hold down pin) is sailors cost.
I understand that reasonable safety measures are in place at the Sailing Club/TRIYA, but there is some risk involved and my teenager will need to exercise common sense and self-discipline, and take heed of the instructions of the coach. A “life jacket” (buoyancy aid) will be worn at all times while on the water. Sailors are expected to assist until all gear has be washed and put away. Sailors need to speak to the Coach/Manager before they leave.
We have 2 coaching safety boats for our coaches that keep a watchful eye on you while you’re on the water. Buoyancy aids must be worn by everyone at all times, TRIYA supplies these if you don’t have one. 20 knots is the cut off for cancellation of LTS as judged by our experienced coaches.

We expect sailors to be careful with the sailboats to keep them in good condition. Sailors will be briefed and learn safe sailing practices while using TRIYA boats. Should there be an incident, resulting in damage due to negligence or undue care; there will be a report. The skipper and crew are liable for up to $500 in costs to repair any damage.
