2020 GP14 Worlds Week –  Three Top Sailor Seminars

With the Skerries World Championship postponed until next year, we invited some top sailor to talk abut their experiences and give us top tips!

Seminar 1 – Join Mike Senior, Ian Dobson and Shane MacCarthy – all winners of GP14 World Championship, to hear how they prepare to achieve their goals, their tactics to win and their helming exploits – a fascinating insight!

Seminar 2 – Everyone who sails GP14 boats knows how crucial the crew is! In this video Dale Knowles chats with World Champion crew Andy Tunnicliffe and Phil Hodgkins. An excellent video chat with great tips from the best!

Seminar 3 –  This week would have been the Worlds at Skerries, now planned for 2021! In the final seminar we start with an update from David Cooke about Skerries S.C and planning for next year.
Then Ross and Jane Kearney (both world class sailors!) will talk about the “grass roots” and their sailing journeys to become top class sailors, more about club sailing and major influences in their formative years.
