Calling all Laser sailors! 

We’re planning a few events aimed at helping people develop their boat handling and racing tactics. 

Wednesday April 20th from 7:00 – 8:30 pm in Park City (Team Park City United Team Room – map)

The topics will be understanding wind patterns, starting, sailing a tactical beat and sailing a tactical run.

Wednesday May 18th from 7:00 – 8:30 pm in Park City (Venue TBD)

The topics will be understanding the basics of boat mechanics, mark rounding and basic racing rules.

Saturday May 28th from 11:00 am until 3:00 pm at the Jordanelle

We’ll cover:

·        Rigging and boat set up on shore

·        On water drills – tacking, jibing, practice starting techniques (create and defend a spot on the line)

·        Straight line speed.

The plan is to have a number of experienced sailors in motor boats to help the sailors throughout the day.  We’ll do some video work in order to show the sailor proper trim and boat handling.

Space at the chalk talks in April and May will be limited and available on a first come first served basis.  The cost will be $10 per person and include pizza and “beverages”.  The on water session will be $25 per person which will cover powerboat gas, beverages and pizza lunch.

We will have a sign up link through the Park City Sailing web site so keep your eyes peeled.

PLEASE GET THE WORD OUT TO ANY LASER SAILOR YOU KNOW, WHETHER OR NOT THEY’VE BEEN OUT THE LAST YEAR OR SO!!

 ALSO, I WOULD APPRECIATE GETTING AN INDICATION NOW (BEFORE REGISTRATION GOES UP) IF YOU ARE THINKING YOU’D LIKE TO PARTICIPATE.  JUST LET ME KNOW at:   michael.zavell@parkcitysailing.org

Thanks and hope to hear from you all.

All the best,
Michael
