It has been an awesome week out on the water at the Zealous Sailing High Performance Clinic!
Ideal light wind conditions made it the perfect playground for the young optimist sailors to develop boating handling, starting and technique skills over the 3 day clinic.
From a coaching perspective, it wasn't hard to see the improvement sailors were making throughout the week as they absorbed the new material both on and off the water.
Many thanks to the Royal Akarana Yacht Club and the New Zealand Optimist Dinghy Association for their support. Another thank you to the parents who gave up their time helping sailors launch and retrieve their boats.
Good luck to all the sailors this weekend at the Auckland Championships. Sam will be there out on the water, check out the fleet on Saturday - come over for a chat, say hey, and ask questions!
Stay tuned for up and coming clinic details!
