This Saturday the Laser Fleet will be conducting a clinic and training day starting at 10am. Jon Deutsch, Mike Toms and other fleet members will be there to help anyone move people forward in sailing, no matter their skill level. Whether you hope to race or play, this clinic can help make Laser sailing more fun and safer.
The clinic will be started at 10AM and run for a little over 2 hours.
