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 Luke Hayes.
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. Taught by Arabella Denvir.
EVENT CHAIR Caroline Garrett is the Chair for this event. Jess Hardin is the On-site coordinator.
ENTRY FEE No fee for club members – a great member benefit! $160 fee for non-members.
