Green Fleet Program
For 2022-23, LSC will be offering members a Green Fleet program based on the Australian Sailing (AS) Club Participation Program blueprint, and utilising resources from that source. A Green Fleet program is aimed at sailors who have completed an introductory ‘learn-to-sail’ course at LSC or elsewhere.
The AS Green Fleet program intends to build fundamental sailing skills, for confidence and independence, in a fun environment. It also plans to introduce some foundation race skills through training activities in an environment that is enjoyable, without competition focus.
There are opportunities to encourage trialling a variety of boats, and other club related activity through age-appropriate design.
We expect that Green Fleet sailors will be refining their fundamental sailing skills and acquiring independence of these skills through progressive stages of development (beginning the skill, developing the skill, competent at the skill).
Price: Members using their own boats participate free of charge.
LSC members boat hire fee applies for members wishing to use LSC boats (e.g. Pacers, Firebugs, Flying 11s). Fee is split between two people in a 2-person boat.
Time: 9:30am – 12 noon.
Dates: Every sailing Sunday from 25 Sept 2022 - 2 April 2023
Age: 8-85!Essential skills: swimming ability, water confidence, some beginner sailing experience required. Life jackets are provided by the club. Participants are highly recommended to wear wetsuits if they have them (either short or long sleeves).
Learn to Sail
In previous years, LSC has run Learn to Sail programs before and after Christmas. Because our current resources will be spread thin delivering the Green Fleet program, we won’t be running Learn to Sail programs before Christmas in 2022.
Later in the year we will assess whether we can run such programs for the last half of the season i.e., commencing in January 2023.
