GET THE UPPER HAND
May 17th - 20th, 2018
Fantastic way to get ready for the summer's racing season. Bill Gladstone and his North U Coaches will introduce you to winning strategies, tools and provide tips to get you across the finish line faster. The coaches are olympians, world champions and pro sailors usually found at challenging world class events. You'll get the inside scoop on how to ensure you are in the right place on the starting line, going fast. Get tips on knowing which side of the course is favoured? Understand the winning strategies in oscillating breezes and when sailing in a persistent shift. Need help holding your lane? Learn about keeping your foils working, and lifting. Practice makes perfect. Work on techniques and practice with your coach in Bill's drills until you've got it perfect. By the end of this clinic, you'll be ready to attack the race course at your home club or in any regatta with confidence. Bring your whole crew. There's no better way to ensure you'll have a winning team on the start line of the first race, long before your competition. This clinic is designed to improve your sailing and racing skills through 3 days of a combination of on-the-water drills, coached training, shoreside seminar instruction, video review, and in-competition coaching. The emphasis will be on practical real-world techniques to improve starting, boat speed, crew work and tactics.
Using One Design’s fleet of 10 Flying Tiger 7.5s and 7 coaches rotating through the fleet, each sailor will get close personal attention over 3 full days of sailing. Coaches will be on board and rotated across the fleet throughout the weekend.
The program will be lead by North U Director Bill Gladstone.
