2018 Training

Training is a key part of our service to GP14 sailors of all abilities, and we have provided many training events this year – see below!

This included 2 days of training before the 2018 World Championship at Mount’s Bay SC.

Check out the video – great drone shots of mark roundings showing how to gybe well (most competitors!)
This is followed by an extended close-up section demonstrating clearly “how to roll-gybe and roll-tack” in light winds – great insight for all of us club sailors into how to achieve these more tricky maneuvers!

There are a lot more training videos on our YouTube training playlist here

GREAT DAY OF TRAINING AT HOLLINGWORTH LAKE SC
 
Six boats, glorious weather and light breeze plus a top-notch coach, what is not to like! We all learnt loads of stuff about tuning for light airs as well as getting some special Gold Fleet nuggets! Lots of roll-tacking and spinnaker gybe practice, finishing with some capsize fun for those wanting to cool down.
 
A big thank-you to Neil Marsden for leading a brilliant day and Hollingworth SC for hosting.
