Friday Afternoon School Sailing

by Peter MacGregor

Friday afternoon sailing sessions are organised for High School students on the Atherton Tablelands. Students must be enrolled in Year 7 or above in 2018. The sessions will run during Term 4, 2017 and Term 1, 2018.

There are two aims of these sessions:

1. To learn to sail or improve your sailing ability.
2. To select school teams that will compete in the “2018 - NQ Inter-School Teams Racing Championships”.

It is a requirement that all sailors are junior (or family) members of the Tinaroo Sailing Club. The participants will be limited to 18 students. The first 18 students to register will secure their position in the program.

The club is offering a very generous package for these sailors.
