Fantastic warm up for the Sprints on the Sunday 21st May and the Soak Insure Southern Championships 27-29th May

The Agenda for the day (read all the way to the end!):

10:00 - Briefing.

  • Overview of the day
  • Discussion on the techniques of sailing and manoeuvring the boat.

11:00 - Leave the shore

  • Training in Bracklesham Bay (via a number of windward / leeward informal races)
  • We will watch / video the sailing so we can provide documented feedback and be able to demonstrate good practice and areas to work on
  • All comms on the water will be via VHF radio

15:00 - Return to shore

  • Debrief

16:00 – Finish (see below regarding an offer you can’t refuse!)

To make the most from the day a bit of preparation would help:

Check your rig settings and tension are correct, using your loos gauge, before the day.

  • Bring your VHF radio.
  • Bring any questions you’d like us to answer about Elite Sailing, prior to sailing.
  • The windward / leeward courses are not “races” so there is no need to push the rules or dive in at the windward mark on port!

 Your so called “experts” on the day will be Colin and Tom!
