Clinics will be held on weekend days starting on September 9th where new theory will be discussed, then put in practice on the water, and lastly tested in a light racing format. The curriculum covers boat handling techniques, sail trim, speed, tactics, and strategy. Sailors will get lots of attention and coaching feedback.
The program is designed to improve and develop your racing skills and is not meant for those new to sailing. Practices are offered for all levels of racing sailors. Clinic days are more structured and rigorous than the summer program experience. Having fun will still be a key element of the racing program, but emphasis is placed on the sharing of learning new skills and racing techniques with the goal of challenging each other to improve and develop racing acumen.
Eligibility requirements, subject to the coach’s discretion, are as follows:
(1) 420 Race Team – racing experience and a minimum of 14 years of age as of December 31, 2017
(2) Opti Race Team – must have finished top 65%ile in at least two Opti Championship Fleet division regattas and completed either Pleon’s summer Opti 1 or Spring Opti Race or equivalent program
(3) Opti Development Team – must have competed in at least two Opti Green Fleet division regattas and completed either Pleon’s Summer Opti Intermediate or an equivalent Spring Opti Development program. Minimum age 9 as of July 31, 2017
