Laser Coaching Day   iCal entry for this event

Anyone wishing to brush up boat handling and racing skills in a Laser Standard or Radial/4.7 is more than welcome to join in this Laser day.

If you are looking to join the club or just want to join us for training on the day you are more than welcome.

Ability levels: You need to be able to sail upwind, tack and gybe in the laser to get the most out of the day, we will be spitting into groups at times, and we hope to have mini handicapped races with the whole group for fun.

The club laser training boats are available to hire, but please arrive in plenty of time to collect and rig boats.

We want to have RiBs on the water and everyone ready for 10am. We are looking to be off the water by 4pm and to organise a BBQ for afterwards. (BBQ to be confirmed re Covid etc)

Andy Kerr, our RYA coach, will be coordinating and we will have some experienced sailors to give advice and help out.

The objective of the day is to get to meet all sailing levels in the Laser so everyone is comfortable to join in the competitive lively fun Sunday races at the club .

The sessions will include: (but these will be dictated by weather conditions on the day)

  • Speed, and getting the most out of your control lines (Cunningham, outhaul and kicker)
  • Upwind work, no good going fast in the wrong direction
  • Boat on boat tactics
  • Starting

Depending on numbers we will break into groups to work on the drills, and if conditions permit we will have some practice racing on a slalom course which will be good practice for Sunday the 11th Oct when we will have a mini competition alongside club racing.
