The Moth Class Association is holding a training weekend at Hayling Island Sailing Club on the 20-21 November. This weekend is focussed on those wanting to improve their skills and new sailors to the fleet.
Sailing and training with others has proved to be the most effective way to learn new skills and pick up new ideas. With coaching from the fleets leading sailors, they can help those attending quickly identify any issues and help move forward more rapidly.
The coaching will be tailored to the needs of those taking part but to do this the MCA need those interested to enter NOW. The entry form includes a section to outline three areas you wish to improve. Based upon this they will create groups to address these areas over the weekend.
Two of the top sailors in the fleet will lead the coaching: Ricky Tagg and Mike Lennon, supported by a number of other people with video to provide personalised feedback with a debrief after each session.
The weekend will kick off with Drinks at Hayling on Friday from 2000 to prepare everyone for a 0900 Briefing on Saturday Morning. The plan is to have a good session on the water in the morning followed by an afternoon on shore looking at boat set-up – a great chance to pick the experts brains!
On the Saturday evening there will be an informal dinner at the club followed by the Grand Prix series prize giving and entertainment.
Sunday will again start with a training session followed by a review. The afternoon session will be a number of short races to enable the new found skills to be put into practice in earnest.
Costing only £28, thanks to the kind generosity of the coaches providing their time for free this is an event not to be missed. Places are limited so those interested should enter early.
