Hello Everyone!!!

I'm so happy that we enjoyed so much our sailing adventure in May.

As promised I'm posting next Sailing Clinic, so we can do it again :)

I invite you to join me at Castle Harbor Boating School to work on gaining maximum sailing experience. Castle Harbor Boating School is running "Saturday Racing Clinics". Racing forces you to learn how to sail fast and efficiently, so it is the best way to hone your skills. It is also fun to try and beat others. Racing is open to all ages between Protected content of experience.

The format is short and sweet:

Check-in at the marina at 10:00am on Saturday. No prior reservation required. The cost is $60 per person.

10:30am: Skipper's Meeting commences. The Principal Race Officer goes over the course, expected wind conditions, starting sequence, and House Rules. We then assign participants to their boats. An experienced skipper is always on board of each boat. If winds are over 12 knots steady then newbees can steer but only on the reaches and runs. Having an inexperienced person steering at the start or windward legs can be dangerous in higher winds.

Everyone boards their boats and heads for the race course.

We usually return to the dock by 1pm. A de-briefing is given and participants enjoy refreshmen
