Training Day at LEYC 17th May
We are in the final stages of putting together a one day training session at Lough Erne Yacht Club. This will take place on Saturday 17th May and will be followed on the Sunday by a 3 race Topper traveller event.
The training session will be headed up by Chris Penney (RYA head Topper coach) and as usual, due to maintaining instructor/sailor ratios, places will be limited to 18 or 20. The cost for the day will be around £22 (or 25 Euro). We are hoping to organise the training groups so that all racing ability levels can be catered for.
