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.

Laser Fleet

wws11

Weir Wood has one of the strongest Laser fleets around. The Laser is great fun to sail at any location, and racing is invariably close. The new sail controls have increased its appeal because anyone (rather than gorillas only) can adjust the kicker, cunningham and outhaul to the best advantage in any conditions without falling out of the boat. The Laser is great fun to sail and race. Being so low in the water, it feels splashy and fast, and really in tune with the wind and the waves. The fleet at Weir Wood is very friendly and caters for 4.7 and Radial rigs equally with the standard rig, using a common start with separate fleet results.
