Prepare for Racing
1 DAY (2 x 2hr sessions)
This is one day course aimed at people who fancy having a go at racing but are holding back because they don't know the basic rules and tactics. This course is for IMPROVERS and BEGINNERS .. it is not going to be detailed enough for experienced racers.
It consists of 2 sessions with a break for a coffee and a sandwich in between. Each session will start with a land based tutorial on the basic rules and tactics covering …. Session1. STARTING/UPWIND .. Session2. DOWNWIND/RACING TACTICS …. And then sailors will have the chance to go afloat and practice what they have just learnt with the additional help of a coach on the water offering advice and encouragement.
At the end of this course sailors will have enough knowledge to take a full and active part in club racing at IMPROVER level.
