- 1030 start time in the Lacco Room
- Coffee available at the bar from 9 am
- Rolls available off the bar from 9 am
- Tune up racing will begin after Couta Conversation.
- Multiple starts, on water coaching.
There will be a presentation and discussion led by Aaron Cole of North Sails.
Aaron will be talking about adjustments to the rig and how this effects control and trimming of the sails. This will be of great value to both “hot shots” and beginners alike. Don’t miss it.
Following the presentation, all Couta Boat skippers and crews are urged to have their boats ready for a “shakedown” sail commencing at approx. 1230 hours. Following some practise starts, on water coaching will be provided. Our aim is to get skippers and crews into the groove for the first aggregate race on Club opening day the following Saturday the 17th.
This all means you will have only 5 weeks to start/finish maintenance and to launch your boats for this event.
Please respond by email to Adam Hawkins: email@example.com indicating your intention to attend. We plan to pair off boats on their handicaps for the coaching session.
Looking forward to seeing you all there.
