What do you want from Ynot in 2017?
After lunch we will assemble Ynot’s schedule for 2017. If you can’t join us you can ensure the programme includes the opportunities you seek by emailing crew_bureau@5ksc.org.uk.

We will discuss our experiences of Ynot in this first season to identify tweaks that can be made to fine tune her to members’ wishes – crew manuals, inventory, gear stowage, instruments, etc. Bring your ideas.

Yacht familiarisations and skills honing 

We can provide a basic tour for your yacht familiarisation on AGM day. To gain a full appreciation of Ynot and her equipment it is best to join a skills honing day when you can sail with people who know Ynot well and share ideas on how to get the best out of her.

Any topic can be covered. Popular topics include marina handling, flying the asymmetric spinnaker, and getting the best from the plotter. More general topics can also be discussed such as favourite spots to visit in 5KSC’s cruising grounds, pilotage, log-keeping, following SOLAS V, etc.
