Adult Transitional Coaching
ADULT TRANSITIONAL RACE COACHING 2020
A series of coaching days is available to sailors who are looking to either start or improve their racing. The days are run by qualified members of the club who have a passion for sailing and give up their time freely. The sessions are free to paid up members.
The main criteria are to have the ability to be able to sail a dinghy competently on all points of sailing and a desire to compete regularly in club racing. Fleet captains are encouraged to use these sessions to engage with their sailors and to champion their fleet.
Feedback from previous years highlights not only the benefit of improved racing skills but also integration to the club by meeting other members with new friendships being formed. New members to the club will find these sessions of real value.
This year we are running a new format. There is one session each month which gives members joining the club during the season the opportunity to join in.
We are looking at a 'Buddy' system to match more/less experienced sailors together. A Pro/Am series to run in tandem with the Saturday sailing on our coaching days is planned.
Experienced sailors are very welcome to assist, Buddy Up, pass on knowledge and join in the racing.
Each session is 'Standalone.' The more you attend the more you will benefit.
We cover all areas of the 'Race Course'.Preparation, Starting, The 1st Beat, Mark Rounding, Off Wind Legs, Tactics, Rules.
You do need to pre book to enable us to ensure we have sufficient coaches and resources available, when we start, more details on 2021 to follow.
