Welcome to Annandale Sailing Club Cadets
STOP PRESS: LATEST CADET UPDATE CLICK HERE
As cadets up to the age of 18, Helen and Jo welcome you to the club and are happy to answer any questions you may have.
The youth members of our club are very important to the future of Annandale, and the sailing club is keen to have all you younger members out there sailing, having fun, learning new skills, gaining RYA sailing qualifications and most importantly meeting and making friends both old and new.
The club runs sailing courses every summer and there is training every Tuesday in the summer and racing every Thursday and Sunday. As well as other club activities appropriate to the level of the sailors attending to ensure that every one progresses and gains the confidence required to take part in both club and national racing and sailing events.
The Boats that we have for our young sailors to learn to sail in are:
Optimist- single handed
Topper- single handed
Pico- single and double handed
Mirror- double handed
We can even sort you with a bouyancy aid to help you on your way on the water, if you get going you may even win a prize at prize giving in December.
So what about the social side?
Each year we look forward to welcoming new cadets and their family and friends, some of you may have started sailing through the active schools programme, or had a sailing taster day. As well as sailing there are many on the shore and other sailing jobs and we encourage all to be involved, such as helping on the commitee boat learning how to set a race course or start and finish a race.
Annandale Cadets have lots of fun and make many new friends. Both the summer and winter programmes include events and activities and there is always a good social event happening
As well as sailing at our club we link to other clubs with other cadets for Kippford week and the schools for the Five castles schools regatta and the Brown Cup at Loch Earn, and there is always lots of laughs, and sailing stories to bring back to the club.
Look out for our newsletter updates which has tips and stories, what we would like to do is develop a cadet diary so that a story can be posted from any event, training or great race that a cadet has done and wishes to share with all the members.
