August 3-4, 2019

DESCRIPTION Back by popular demand for Fishing Bay females!  A two day sailing/ racing clinic for women of all degrees of experience and age, with a combination of classroom learning and on-the-water time. Now extended to a two-day format!

Flying Scot sailboats will be used for the on-the-water portion.

We encourage you to bring your own boat, but there will be club-owned boats available.

The Event Chair will coordinate your spot on a boat. The clinic will have two class offerings. Choose your preferred class when you register.

1) Sailing Basics (beginners): For the novice or someone with a bit of sailing knowledge. Improving basic sailing knowledge, gaining comfort with boat handling; not racing focused. You can be a skipper or crew when on the water, depending on your comfort level. Taught by Caroline Garrett, J World instructor, 2000. Level 3 US Sailing Instructor.
2) Advanced Racing class: For those familiar with racing. Increased boat handling skills, increasing “tiller time”, racing strategy and tactics. You can be a skipper or crew, depending on your comfort level. Racing sailing coach to be announced.

EVENT CHAIR Caroline Garrett is the Chair for this event.
