On-the-water Clinic – Saturday March 9 – LIYC

ONLINE REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED FOR THIS EVENT. If you would like to participate, you can bring your own boat and crew and pay at the door (check or cash) . BUT, A MENTOR WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE TO SAIL WITH YOU.

Phil Thompson will be hosting the H20 on-the-water clinic on Saturday, March 9 at LIYC. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from one of the top racers in Fleet 1! There will be two on-the water sessions. Phil will start by sharing tips on starting and race course analysis followed by practice starts and short races. After a break for lunch, he will do an on-the dock demonstration with sails up talking about mast, rigging dynamics, shroud tensions and sail trim and demonstrating the proper use of the backstay, boom vang, cunningham, main outhaul, jib outhaul, jib downhaul and how to set the jib height using the jib halyard. Then back on the water for longer races with emphasis on boat speed, sail shape and sail trim.

One of the things that makes these clinics successful is that they provide an opportunity to practice elements of sailboat racing with experienced “mentors” aboard each boat. This can greatly accelerate the learning curve, and provides a great opportunity to meet and sail with others!

The clinic will begin at 10:00. Sailing will end at 4:00 when Happy Hour begins!

The registration fee is $49.00 and includes Lunch and Happy Hour.

When you register, please answer the question on the “Checkout” page as to whether you will be bringing a boat, crewing on a boat that someone else is bringing, or are requesting a spot on a boat that we provide. It is very important that we have this information in advance so that we can assure the everyone has a spot on a boat, and that mentors are available to sail on each boat.

We hope to see you there!
