The main purpose of Team Wayfarer is to provide a facility to develop the sailing skills and confidence of new adult recruits. To do this we can initially crew them with an experienced member, they then continue with mutual support. This is not a substitute for the initial training courses, but can follow on from those courses. It is also suitable for members returning to dinghy sailing who need to regain their confidence in company with other members. Also established members who normally sail solo can use the boat for the occasional family outing.
The team uses the Club Wayfarer ‘Star Streamer’ which has a capacity of four and is ideal for the purpose.
Any member can join Team Wayfarer. All we ask is that you take care of the boat and report deficiencies. Any work needed is generally done on Weds morning maintenance sessions.
Team Wayfarer is managed by the teamer .net sports management website.
If you join Team Wayfarer you will be put on the Teamer website .
The way we run Teamer is that an event is created for a particular date and time when the safety boat will be on the water.
A message is then sent to all team members by email or through the iPhone AP. You will be invited to accept or decline the invitation. The first four who accept will be the crew. If the event is oversubscribed then we have the offer of a club Vision.
The Wayfarer can also be used at any other time by capable Team Wayfarer members.
Anyone wanting more information can contact me through the Marketing@tcyc.org.uk email.
