2024 Fleet 1 Learning Opportunities!

The learning program for Fleet 1 is being enhanced this year by combining class room education with on-the-water exercises. This makes sense because classroom knowledge is of no value unless put into practice and sailboat racing is complex enough as to require classroom education in order understand the game.

Program Overview

There are three large but essentially separate bodies on knowledge required to be a proficient sailboat racer each of which will be covered in detail in a day-long seminar in a classroom setting. Each will be followed up 2 – 3 weeks later with an on the water clinic. Bring your own boat and crew to the clinic, and as in the past, experienced mentors will be available to sail with you.

Seminars are day-long events that include a continental breakfast and lunch. Clinics will start later in the day with an on-the dock “chalk talk” starting at 11:00, lunch at 12:00, and sailing from 1:00 until 4:00 with break halfway through. Happy hour will commence at 4:00!
