J Fest Southwest Racing Clinic
October 31, 2013 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Our Racing Course feature a broad-based curriculum covering racing boathandling as well as race course tactics and strategy. Onboard instruction includes an orientation to the spinnaker (asymmetric and symmetric) and its use around the race course, crew assignments, sail trim and shape, tacking, gybing, starting drills, and short course racing with instructor’s review. We would recommend you rotate among all the positions onboard throughout the course, though if you crew would like to refine their normal roles that is fine as well. The course features lectures on upwind/downwind strategy and tactics, starting strategy and tactics, performance sail trim, plus rules fundamentals.
