Race Coaching Sessions 2022

For 2022, WWSC have arranged 3 coaching sessions to give adult and youth members access to RYA qualified race coaches. If you are looking to join the club or just want to join us for training on the day you are more than welcome.
You can sign up to as many sessions as you need and if you need a club boat we can arrange that as well.
Andy Kerr, our RYA coach, will be coordinating and we will have some experienced sailors to give advice and help out.

Programme

Sunday 3rd April –  Advanced Racing Techniques
Sunday 12th June – Introduction and improving racing techniques
Saturday 24th September – Performance sailing for double handed dinghy’s (including Spinnakers)

Ability levels

You need to be able to sail upwind, tack and gybe in the class of boat you are sailing to get the most out of the day, we will be spitting into groups at times, and we hope to have mini handicapped races with the whole group for fun.

2000 Fleet

Training

The 2000 is bigger on all key dimensions and consequently has more space, seating and carries more crew weight than an RS200. It is much easier to sail and less ‘tippy’. The roller-reefing jib and reefing main make it more family friendly and suitable for cruising and holiday use. Importantly for the club, it is just within the sights of an ambitious beginner. Whilst it is slower and heavier to recover from a capsize than the 200, an adult and small child can recover the 2000 from inverted. The 2000 has been around for a few years and being the fastest growing 2-handed racer in the UK already offers good close racing and large fleets (50 boats at the Nationals and 22 at Weir Wood’s open meeting). Both classes are really exciting to sail in a strong wind.
