Optimist Clinic in Chicago April 26-27

Here’s an opportunity for parents of ambitious EYC Optimist sailors to get a jump start on the 2014 season with a clinic led by an expert coach.

Chicago Yacht Club will host a clinic led by Scott Norman, a coach for the FAST team who has long been coaching Optis at a high level. In addition to Scott, Dustin Domer, the head Opti coach at Chicago Yacht Club, will be helping out.

The clinic will run Saturday April 26 from 9am-4pm and Sunday April 27 from 9am-2pm. The price for the clinic will be $300 per sailor. If traveling sailors do not wish to bring their own boat, they can charter one of Chicago Yacht Club’s for a fee of $75 for the weekend.

This clinic is a great opportunity for the intermediate to advanced Opti sailor to advance their sailing skills and prepare for the 2014 summer season. Some topics that will be covered will include:

-Proper rigging

-Boat handling

-Rules knowledge

-Starting techniques

-Upwind and downwind techniques

-Tactics

-and much more!!!
