Keelboat Clinic Trial at Datchet….!!

FF Clinic 2Picking up on Burton SC’s idea, Datchet ran a Keelboat Clinic last weekend.  A group of eight turned out, including two potential new owners.

FF Clinic 1The idea was very much self-help from the Fleet, and was both on and off the water.  Attendees listed topics they wanted to cover in advance, then led by Fleet Captain Mervyn Wright, and his predecessor, John Hanson, the group set about getting their questions answered.  We were lucky that winds were light, so we had a fifteen rigged on the shore for sail shape demos, the three boats went afloat – with lots of crew/helm swapping between boats.

Very good – if we get one or even two new members, as well as a skill upgrade, we shall consider it a great event!
