Successful Training

As RYA training Centre the CYC has based its extremely successful series of courses on the club’s Sonata fleet. It’s course graduates forming regular crews for racing and it’s Women on the Water and Blokes on Boats divisions using the Sonatas several times a week to develop the skills of the many aspiring sailors in North Essex and beyond. 

Reigning National Champion Max Richardson commented: “It’s the first time the Nationals are to be  held in Brightlingsea and I am looking forward to joining fellow sonata sailors for some great summer racing.”.

The Nationals will take place just one week after the CYC’s very popular Cadet week and just before Pyefleet week  allowing the possibility for senior teams to take advantage of the Pyfleet event. CYC hope to enter a complete cadet crewed boat for the Nationals.  

Adrian Gibbons Chairman of the CYC National Championship Committee and President commented “We are looking forward to welcoming the Sonata fleet to Brightlingsea and delivering a great National Championship for the class – through our partnership with the Brightlingsea Sailing Club we hope to offer highest level competitive sailing venue and course with Committee boats starts, great hospitality and a stunning venue.”
