DON’T LET THOSE SKILLS GET RUSTY
There are lots of resources available to keep your skills up to date and even some to improve them.
Every Wednesday at 10am on the RYA YouTube channel there’s a new video tutorial called Sail Smarts. There are some with activity sheets for children (of all ages) to try. There’s one on Buoyages, Tides and Clouds.
‘Knot on the Water’ on the YouTube channel shows you how to tie different sailing knots, including a one-handed bowline - handy!
You can make your own harbour with the Buoyage Cut and Stick
For something a little more advanced you can head over to the British Sailing Team YouTube where you’ll find videos on motivation, workouts etc.
For additional resources you can look at:
1851Trust STEM crew website
World Sailing Education materials
Ocean Race Learning resources
