Junior Launch Pad Race Series starts on 6th Sept.
The Saturday Club has been a great success but some people have mentioned they liked the Sunday morning junior racing that used to happen. We've listened and it's back. We want to cater to as many people as possible and build the skills of all Ripon SC juniors, so the Launch Pad junior race series will be held on Sunday mornings as well as the Junior Club that is about to restart on Saturday afternoons.
The popular Junior Saturday Club will start again on the 30th August and run for five weeks finishing just in time for the Junior Laying up Supper on 18th October. The cost this time will be £20 for all five sessions offering excellent value for money. The format will be similar to that used in the spring with sailors needing to be rigged and ready for 13:30.
The Junior Saturday Club will run in addition to a rescheduled Junior Launch Pad racing series that will move back to it's traditional slot on Sunday morning. More details to follow.
