Sailing lessons, anyone interested?

Post by adeline1610 » Fri, 13 Apr 2007 4:24 pm

I really love the sea (I'd like to be a fish!) and do most watersports like windsurfing, surfing, diving, snorkeling, etc but yet, I have yet to fully figure out how to work a laser.

So....sailing lessons are on the agenda, probably at the National Sailing Centre down at East Coast Park although its still open. ANYONE INTERESTED ???????

Hey,

so do i, i think i definately was a fish in my former life. Went sailing last year at Great Barrier Reef, combined with snorkeling and diving, best thing i ever did, definately. Geting up in the morning, hot coffe while the sun is rising over the ocean, and 10 minutes and 10 meters later wonderful reefs and fish.Great.

so i would be in...

cheers

Cool! However, note that for the keelboat course, it is quite a commitment, 3 whole Saturdays. I got this schedule from the SAF Yacht club down at Tanah Merah Ferry road.

1,5,6 May and 16,23,30 June 2007.

The other one that's possible might be Changi Sailing Club. National Sailing Centre is probably very crowded, I know when I was windsurfing there 2 years ago it was really packed with sails everywhere :P

Schedule still okay? I'm game for the 1st May, and they need 4 to start the course i think.

hi whats the course fees? I'd think that you need ppcdl and basic laser sailing before u could do keelboat?

Okay June then, Nanren you think you'll confirm that?

No for the keelboat you can start from the basic if i'm not wrong. I'll check, but I think its skippers that you'll need the PPCDL. If not, can always start with the dinghys :P
