Spring Seminars - Tuesday Evenings

Spring Series - Tuesday Evenings

Rules, Tactics, Strategy, Sail Shape/Trim

Terry Foster reviews the rules, tactics, and strategy of racing the first 2 Tuesdays.

Terry Foster and Gordy Bowers on the 3rd Tues. explain proper sail trim in terms everyone understands. All the seminars are designed to both have fun and improve your sailboat racing skills.

May 1: In the first seminar Terry Foster addresses the rules tactics, and strategy after the start, for the upwind leg, the Windward Mark approach and rounding, the downwind leg, the leeward mark rounding, and the leeward gate rounding. The on the water training clinic the following Saturday is then designed to enter all of those situations and to practice what they look like on the water.

May 8: In the second seminar Terry Foster reviews the rules tactics and strategy around the course, and then addresses the rules tactics and strategy of the start. The following Saturday are 2 ½ hours of starts at three minute intervals. This is an opportunity for skippers and crew to get in more starts than they do in an entire racing season.

May 15: In the third seminar Terry Foster and Gordy Bowers describe what sail shape and trim should be in both the upwind and downwind legs.
