On Sunday 12th October, the second of the Women and Girls Laser training sessions was conducted by Mark Tonner-Joyce at Sandringham Yacht Club.
It was a perfect day for sailing with a light breeze and warm weather in the morning, and a gradually building breeze in the afternoon.
The focus of the session was on boat speed with a number of exercises, such as rabbit starts, downwind release and windward/leeward races.
Thanks to Sandringham Yacht Club and especially Sulis Papantoniou for making the participants feel welcome.
This is the last of the VLA Women/Girls sessions until 2015, but we will be conducting Laser Activate days and Class Development Days throughout the summer.
Just a reminder that Westernport Yacht Club are holding the inaugural Sarah Blanck regatta on the 8th and 9th November for women and girls sailors in Laser. Please see their website: CLICK HERE
