Youth Race and train

Junior/Youth Race & Train Afternoons

The first Junior/Youth Sailing Training of the year on 18 March had Mother Nature supporting with some great weather!

By 1pm we had three 4.7 lasers and three Feva's ready to go at which point two laser sailor's decided it would be prudent to jump into a Feva due to the freshening wind and 2 sailors decided Terra Firmer was safer.

The afternoon started with a practice race so the coach could assess sailors and experience and how boats had been set up after a few races all went ashore and all Feva's were set up by the sailors for the conditions.

With the wind easying it was decided that that Team Racing would be a chance for all to communicate and help each other quietly or loudly.

All in All a great afternoon, thank you to all sailors and parents who made the afternoon run smoothly

Coach: Mark S
