J/World Racing Events
Every winter, J/World hosts a couple of special racing clinics. Our exceptional winter sailing venues in San Diego and Puerto Vallarta provide the perfect settings for our workshops: powerful combinations of classroom curricilum, dockside time, and on the water practice which will help participants take their skills to the next level. A small student-to-instructor ratio (typically 3 or 4 to 1) insures that everyone gets a lot of personal attention from our gathering of some of the best coaches in North America.
These events are appropriate for seasoned racers looking for some polish on their skill sets, and for less experienced individuals hoping to get more comfortable on the racecourse. We often run multiple lectures (intro and advanced) in the mornings , the lecture schedule includes 1) Boat Orientation, 2) Starting, 3) Upwind Strategy and Tactics, 4) Downwind Strategy and Tactics, 5) Regatta Preparation. Within this structure, we cover:
|• Sail Trim and Shape
• Sail Handling
•Roll Tacking and Gybing
•Advanced Spinnaker Techniques
•Mark Rounding Strategies
•Boathandling•Spinnaker and Sail Handling
•Yacht Racing Rules
We conduct a three to four day clinic, then roll into a J/World Midwinter Regatta on the final day(s)… but the coaching and lectures continue, and coaches will be aboard at all times, providing insights and instruction, and crew members rotate thru all the positions.
J/World has been providing race coaching for nearly 40 years now. We have an unmatched history at making sailors better, smarter, and faster. Our coaches are chosen for their vast experience and their exceptional ability to share their knowledge. And we have a great time. J/World is the gold standard for racing instruction that thousands of sailors have come to appreciate throughout the decades, so come see what it is all about.
The cost is $1495 per person (plus 10% Port Taxes; full pricing policies here). Availability is limited, so be sure to reserve your space early ($400 deposit). Call 800-910-1101
