Junior News

Report on Sunday's epic session from Allan:

Due to strong winds, we made the decision to only allow experienced Juniors to training on Sunday 12 November. Those attending gained valuable experience sailing in heavy weather conditions, noticeably building their confidence though the session. Racing was cancelled so we just spent the morning bombing around the area just off Shelley Beach. Link to pics below the fold...

Junior Racing Winter Training got off to a fantastic start on Saturday 14th October.  20 juniors with a range of abilities and experience had the opportunity to learn and develop their racing skills with guidance from our volunteer coaching team of Mike Way and Debbie Hemmings along with professional coach Mark ‘Corky’ Rhodes. 

Junior Racing crews headed to Parkstone this weekend to compete in two days racing at the Volvo Feva Grand Prix, which is also a Feva Squad selector event.  Saturday was fresh with a steady breeze of 15 knots gusting to 20.  Jakson Leach and Tom Massey were the leading Exe boat overnight holding 18th position in the fleet of 40. 

For those younger members looking to improve their racing skills this winter the Exe Squad Winter Dates have now been published. If you wish to know more about joining Exe Squad please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Don't forget: the best way to improve is to go sailing: you are always welcome to join ordinary club-racing.
