Laser Class Development


The Victorian Laser Association is thrilled to announce that Sarah Ogilvie (nee Blanck) will be coordinating Laser Class Development Coaching for 2015/16.

Laser Class Development Coaching is open to all Laser sailors of any age group, who are members of the association, and wish to develop/improve their Laser sailing with a view to competing in State and National regattas.

To assist Sarah we will use specialist Laser coaches when Sarah is unavailable, or where the sailor coach ratio warrants additional on water support.

In addition to the Laser Class Development coaching Sarah will run four separate Women/Girls only sessions during the year in addition to the coaching available at the Sarah Blanck Perpetual Regatta on the 7-8 November.

Masters sailors are encouraged to join the Class Development Sessions, but it is also recognised that the Masters would like their own training camp, and planning is underway for this to be conducted prior to the Laser Masters Australian Championships at Port Stephens, NSW 12-15 February 2016.

Much of the Class Development activity occurs prior to Christmas. It is the VLA’s Intention to conduct additional Class Development and Laser Activate days at active Laser Clubs after Christmas with the specialist Laser coaches.

Bookings for Class Development are made through Trybooking on a pay as you go basis, but we would appreciate it if sailors would book early so that we can manage the sailor/coach ratio and ensure there are sufficient RIBS.
