I've got a Go-pro I can bring down.

Starting and big fleet racing are key areas I'd like to spend some time on - but any subject will help me!

Cheers

Yeah starts for me as well. Positioning and getting speed off the line. Maybe set a short line compared with the number of boats to reflect a big fleet.

Ben,

I have a GoPro that you can fit on a head-cam or on the boat. It would be great if we could film some tacks and gybes from the experts. Maybe swap boats for a short while as the bracket is already in place on my boat?

I have a long list of things that need improving !
Gybing in 20 to 24 knots (currently 50:50 I have plenty of Go pro footage of failed gybes if you are interested).
Upwind speed in F3 to 4 when choppy.
Start lines.
Judging downwind laylines

I'll bring my GoPro too.

I'd like to do some work on:
- short/busy start lines
- Upwind and downwind tuning runs with some video analysis to see the difference between the boats
- general boat handling!

Thanks

Focus areas for me are:

- Rigging up
- getting changed
- launching
-Getting to the race area
- starting
- going upwind
- tacking
- upwind mark roundings
- downwind
- gybing
- Downwind mark rounding
- finishing
- getting back ashore
- getting changed

But if you pushed me for the priorities ones it'd probably be starting and upwind boat speed.

Hi Guys,

Sorry but need to drop out this weekend - the kids have both been struck down with chicken pox! It's bloody typical, I've been moaning that I need some training for ages and now i cant make it.

Have fun.

Rob.

Sorry to hear that Rob/Jason/Mark.....

For the rest of us the forecast is looking good - 8-13kts NE so still chilly but BBC reckons sunny all day!

Sunday looks breezy and wind back out of the SW so could be a classic Stokes Bay day.

So far planning to focus on:

- Short line/busy starts
- Upwind lane holding
- Upwind boat speed
- Gybing
- Downwind laylines

See you all on Saturday.

Cheers,

Ben

Thanks for running the training yesterday Ben/Mike. Learnt a lot and great to catch up with everyone!

Note to self: forecast of 6-8 knots actually means force 6-8 at stokes bay...
