Bulletin to Oppie Sailors & Parents January ’09

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedintumblrmailWe are now planning for next year and for the spring season in particular. Taking a lesson from the Toppers and with the very positive support of the club, we have engaged the services of one of the top Optimist coaches in the UK to bring on the standards of sailing and coaching among our young sailors. Ollie Green, who is currently Head Coach of the GBR Intermediate Squad, has agreed to travel to Dublin to coach our oppie sailors over four weekends during the spring season in preparation for the sailing season proper. While at college Ollie was the senior GBR National Coach for Oppies so, I’m proud to say that we have sourced one of the best in the business to help our young sailors. The dates that we have agreed are as follows:
  • Sat/Sun 7th and 8th March
  • Sat/Sun 28th and 29th March
  • Sat/Sun 25th and 26th April
  • Sat/Sun 30th and 31st May
Our regular spring coaching sessions will run in tandem with these dates and it will be a very exciting part of next year’s calendar. Please see the full schedule following. Pat Donnelly NYC Optimist class Co-ordinator
