Beginners This week the beginners class zeroed in on practice racing in preparation for Opti Cup. On Monday and Wednesday, we practiced a windward leeward course and utilized this practice on the first day of Opti cup which was on Friday. The beginner students will continue their competition the following week! We are so proud of our beginners class as we have already been racing for over a week and are getting amazing amounts of practice.
Intermediates The Intermediate class definitely got to enjoy some heavy winds this week. We did some practice races and began our annual Intermediate Cup. The class really practiced getting out on the trap, using spins in heavy air, as well as experiencing some tough capsizes. Overall, they had tons of fun and are excited to continue Intermediate Cup next week!
Racing Tactics In the morning on Tuesday, the Racing Tactics class unfortunately experienced no wind. As a result, they all piled into optis and did kinetic races, swam, and capsized. The afternoon was much better as the class was able to race for our Summer Series. They are excited for next week as Tuesday will host our annual Nowack Cup.
Note from the Junior Advisor:
New updates will be coming for 2023 sailing season!
