LTS – Teen Race Clinic
Note: This is a full-day class, 5 days: Monday – Friday from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. (Ages 13-18 years)
Prerequisite: enrollment in BYC Race Team OR completed of Advanced Sailing OR instructor permission. Please contact the Youth Sailing instructor if you are unsure of your qualifications.
This week of coaching is for sailors who are confident in basic racing skills and looking to reach the next level. Chalk talks about tactics, strategy, and boat handling will help sailors learn new techniques to improve their race results. Most importantly, spending five days on the water with an experienced coach will provide invaluable experience. We will have FJs, lasers, J/24s, and 29ers available for practice and the coach will choose boats based on ability, experience, and interest of the entire group. Sailors should come into this class open-minded regarding which boat they sail and excited about both skippering and crewing. This is a recommended opportunity for sailors who are interested in racing on the high school or BYC race teams as well as current team members.
Camp is from 9am to 4pm. Registration Deadline is at 5:00 p.m. the Friday before the week of the class.
