For those who wish to learn more more about racing theory, preparation for racing, get a written summery of their Laser to Laser session, with a list of home work tasks. We offer an additional hour with the coach for the sum of $80.00.
Three buoys are set in triangle, each about 100m apart. This short course allows the sailor and coach to concentrate on boat handling in a small area. Upwind mark rounding, downwind mark rounding, trimming towards the mark, jibing at the mark, reaching, tacking all the points one wants to work on with the coach being right there on the coach boat for immediate feedback. We run the Magic triangle inside the bay, for increased wind shifts and change in wind velocity. This 2 hour- 4 day session, is planed for a minimum of four sailors, and the coaching fees are $270.00 a person. Laser Charter is $360.00. Sailors are welcome to practice on their own every day after the coaching session.
