Dun Laoghaire Laser Youth Squad: Mid Term Coaching Clinic

This coaching clinic will be jointly hosted by RSCYC and NYC.
NYC sailors should sign up using the NYC link; All other sailors should sign up using the RSGYC link

Is this program for you?
The coaching is designed for sailors who wish to improve their racing skills for competition in Regional and National events. Our group are typically 14 to 17 years of age and weigh upward of around 53kg. New entrants who previously competed in Optimists or Toppers are welcome. If sailors are unsure, we are happy to have them join the group on a trial basis to “try out”. Less confident sailors can opt out of the heavy wind sessions. With the 4.7 worlds scheduled for Dun Laoghaire in summer 2021, this is an ideal opportunity for aspiring sailors to gain international experience.

Coaches:
Our panel includes local coaches; Jack Fahy, Toby Hudson Fowler, and Henry Higgins who have a wealth of international experience and connect well with this age group.

Midterm Clinic:
Dates:
• Wed, 28 Oct
• Thu, 29 Oct

Timing: Afternoons
• 12:30 – Arrive in Sailing gear
