Welcome Back to All
Term has started and the summer has returned giving us glorious sunny days but very little wind.  With these conditions we would like to remind everyone that hats and suntan lotion is a must to stop your children burning.

Letters & Communications
Whilst all students have been reminded, if they have forgotten, the reply slips from the term letters are now due back and must be completed each term.  The letter if you can't find it is on our website at www.outdooreducation.clairescourt.net/home/sailing  Here you will also find a new section called Notices where copies of all information sent out will be stored incase you accidently delete the e-mail or think that you may have been missed off our list.
For those that are asked to join the sailing team, event information can be found and if you ask your child to login then contact details for all those attending can be seen so that lift shares can be organised.

Sailing t-shirts and hoodies suitable for wearing on the water can be purchased direct from Goyles of Maidenhead and come customised with your name or initials.  We would like to see all those competing at events to arrive wearing our kit.
We are currently putting together an order for custom rash vests which will be emblazoned with our logo throughout as part of the design.  Those students who are interested should speak to Sammy IJ for more information.
Whilst the weather at the moment is suitable for shorts and t-shirts it could very quickly turn to winter and so please ensure that your child has a wetsuit or drysuit which fits ready.  For those only attending evening activities a 3mm thickness is fine for the autumn, for those sailing through the winter we advise 5mm on the trunk of the body.

Upcoming Events
Our events calendar can be found on our website here https://sites.google.com/a/clairescourt.net/ccoe/home/events-calendar which allows you to plan ahead.
Please remember that if selected for a team at an event you are expected to represent the school and only in exceptional circumstances will you be allowed to miss a fixture.  We aim to give as much notice as possible of teams, however we are sometimes delayed by the event organisers.
