After School Club
We are running a fortnightly After School Club for young YSC members on Thursdays during the summer term and with one session in September. We will have a social get-together on September 28th from 5.30 to 8.00 pm.
The 5.30pm time has proved to be popular, with 17 children attending and 3 different ability groups. The middle group of Oppie sailors have enjoyed sailing in very high winds with storm rigs and in no wind have tried out the new Peanut rowing dinghies which were thoroughly enjoyed.
Some very nervous beginners have been nurtured through and it is very rewarding to see these youngsters now sailing independently back to the clubhouse.
We aim to sail again on 14th September and will watch “Swallows and Amazons” at the club after our awards are given out during a social session on 28th September, 5.30 – 7.30 pm.
Dates: (All Thursdays) May 4th, 18th, June 1st, 15th, 29th, July 13th, September 14th.
Times: 3.30 – 5.30 (beginners), 5.30 – 7.30 (all abilities).
