As we approach the last coaching sessions of our current series for the Optimist Fleet this Sunday, it’s a good time to briefly reflect on the considerable progress made by all MBSC Optimist sailors over the last number of months.

Since March, over 50 children have participated in structured coaching programmes, many of whom had their first sailing/boating experience. The hard work, enthusiasm and commitment to the coaching programme has seen all sailors broaden their sailing skills & knowledge and enhance their appreciation and enjoyment of sailing.

We wish all the sailors an enjoyable summer, and every success in their sailing activities – MBSC sailing courses, club leagues, Regional Events – and look forward to welcoming everyone back to the coaching programme, which will recommence in September.

Sincere thanks to all the coaches involved and to the parents who kindly assisted with duties on Sundays.
