Welcome to the UKWA Home Page Forums Racing Open Meetings Re: Training Day at National Champs


We propose to hold one Race Training Day in 2012 at Medway YC on Thursday 19 July as a warm up day for the Nationals and incorporating the Practice Race for the much prized 🙄 Idler’s Bucket. See programme below.
Note: free camping is available from the Wednesday 18 July and the Club galley will be open for meals in the evening

What do you think? Your feedback/comments are welcome. Also I am looking for Gold Fleet sailors to help me on the day, and does anyone know of someone who could video the on-water action for us?

10:00 Arrival and Registration
11:00 Briefing and Rules Seminar (focussing on starts, first beat and mark rounding).
12:00 Lunch
13:00 Boat Tuning and Demo of Spinnaker handling in the dinghy park
14:00 On-water practice starts, followed by the Practice Race for the Idler’s Bucket recorded on video.
16:00 De-rig boats/change and shower
18:00 Supper
19:00 Video debriefing in the Clubhouse
21:00 Ends

With best wishes and season’s greetings
