Ok, we just wrapped up our 2016 SCYA Midwinter Clinic and Regatta… and it was an absolute hoot! Sailors from all around North America joined J/World aboard four of our J/80s in beautiful San Diego for three days of coached practice sessions and classroom time, followed by two days out on the racecourse with the Midwinter Regatta.
Each morning began with classroom sessions covering everything from upwind mainsail trim to heavy air gybing. Lectures revolved around strategy, tactics, and rules. Then we raced! Not to shabby for February, eh?
Thanks tons to all the sailors who came out and joined us! I think the only compliant we heard all week was that some of the participants living in ‘less accommodating’ climes would have to wait three more months before getting to sail their boats! Sorry to hear that, but glad you were able to sneak in a winter training session. Now go back home and show your local fleet how it’s done come springtime!
All the best,
Wayne, Patrick, Sean, Robert, Andrew, and the rest of the J/World Team….
