Saturday 3 November 2012 – Practice Session

Our next Fleet Practice Session will take place on Saturday 3 November 2012.

These are our informal self run practice sessions where we can work together on practice drills, pair tuning, mark roundings etc.

If you’re planning to come to the club that day please post a reply to this topic so that others can see who else will be there and it might motivate them to come along as well!

Saturday 1 September 2012 – Practice Session

This Saturday is the first Saturday of the month and sees the first of our Fleet Practice Sessions.

These are our informal self run practice sessions where we can work together on practice drills, pair tuning, mark roundings etc. We’ll meet up first and have a quick chat about what people want to focus on. As it’s difficult to communicate out on the water we’ll run through the drills on land first before launching.

It would be really useful to get an idea of how many of you will be there so please let me know at fleetcaptain@qmlasers.com if you’re coming. The start time is 10am, meet in the boat park. Also if you want to come but can’t make 10am then please still get in touch, if it suits more people to make it a later time then that would be possible as long as I know beforehand. If you’re at the front of the fleet it would be great to see you as well especially if you’re prepared to help those of us behind you!

Rigging demo and discussion – Sunday 26 August after racing

Mark Sancken has kindly offered to run through how he rigs his control lines. It can really help if you have the lines set up correctly at mark roundings, or if you don’t have the strength to pull them on as hard as you’d like. Even if you have yours set up like the Olympic Champion then please still come along for the discussion as there’s no ‘correct’ set up and it would be interesting to hear why you have yours set up the way you do. Sunday 26 August in the dinghy park after racing.
