Annapolis womens' clinic

J22 fleet to host training sessions for Rolex International Womens Keelboat Championship

Tuesday April 22nd 2003, Author: Dana Paxton, Location: United States
On June 8 and August 9 the Annapolis J/22 Fleet 19 will host a two-part “Road to Rolex” women’s sailing clinic, in preparation for the Rolex International Women’s Keelboat Championship (IWKC) to be held September 28 to October 3, 2003 in Annapolis. Well-known competitive sailor and U.S. Naval Academy coach Nancy Haberland (Annapolis) will conduct the clinic which includes a skill assessment and review of basic tactics for fleet racing. Haberland won the 1997 Rolex IWKC as crew and finished fourth at the regatta in 2001 as a skipper.

Registration for the two-part clinic is $120 per boat. For one day, registration is $80 per boat. Additional coaches will be added to the roster under Haberland’s leadership.

Each participant will receive a copy of the “Road to Rolex” clinic manual written by Betsy Alison, a five-time Rolex Yachtswoman of the Year and 2004 Olympic aspirant. Alison has won the biennial Rolex IWKC five times and is an internationally recognized sailing educator and coach.

“The clinics are designed to be adaptable to a group’s knowledge of the equipment and skills, so all levels of sailing ability are welcome,” said “Road to Rolex” coordinator Sue Mikulski, owner/skipper of the J/22 Hard Headed Woman.
