While much of the programme for the day will be keel boat and cruiser focused there will be some additions that should appeal to a wider audience. To start with, we need to have our discussion, delayed from December, on the way ahead with Open Race Training - there will be a proposal put forward which should interest all the clubs supporting this initiative. To follow this up, there will be a couple of workshops under the general title 'pathway to the future' aimed at coaches, instructors, Principals and parents on how to link junior dinghy racing activities from club to national level with all the steps in between.
The cruising programme will have workshops on sails and marina manoeuvring as well as safety and survival aspects. There will also be an environment topic so this day is for all the crew, not just the one 'in command'.
