PARENTS
Parents are needed to be the organisers both before and during the sessions – taking bookings, setting dates, organising safety boat drivers and instructors, supervising sign on/welcomer, crewing on safety boats, setting up sign on tent, pack up, catering – sausage sizzle, cold fruit …

Juniors rig and un-rig the small boats – with assistance if required.

ADULT TRY SAILING & TRAINING: Try Sailing is run at the same time as Juniors depending on availability of boats and skippers so dont just sit on the bank and watch – reply to this email to request a sail. Also if you are a competant skipper and would like to use a Club Corsair please organise this in advance.

FACILITIES
We do not have a “club house” the container is for boat and equipment storage.
Juniors are not permitted to enter the container unless putting boats and equipment away.
There are public toilets close by – juniors must notify an adult if going to the toilet – Under 10’s to go in pairs.
Refreshments – the club has cold drinks, limited snacks and sometimes bbq hot dogs for sale. The Sheoak Shack cafe is opposite the boat ramp car park and the Fingal General Store & cafe is round the corner.
