Laser Youth Sailors – Coaching with Dan


l to r: Ferdy, Tom, Josh, Ptolemy, Ben, Dan, Andy, Harvey
Our youth Laser sailors had a session with experienced Laser sailor and RYA coach Dan Alsop on Saturday, concentrating on starting procedures and mark rounding, in mixed handicap fleets and in class races. Dan offered his expertise and tips gained over many coaching sessions he’s run.
They are off to the NSSA Youth Championships at Plymouth after next weekend, a great club entry for Lyme and a first in a big event for them. They all have their own Lasers, including the two ILCAS on loan from Ovington’s to promote youth into the class. Missing was Elliot who is having to isolate but will be with them on Tuesday when they will practice the trapezoid course in preparation for the club Regatta – if we get some wind!
