Laser Class Development Day

Posted in Activate by George. | Leave a Comment

The Victorian Laser Association is excited to announce that it will be conducting a number of Laser Class Development Days (LCDD) during 2014.

The first LCDD date is Saturday 8th March at Blairgowrie Yacht Squadron commencing at 9am. The coaching will be provided by one of the State’s leading Laser coaches, Ben Gunther, and will consist of a skills development session in the morning, followed by participation in the Blairgowrie afternoon race. Ben will be on the water to watch the racing and will provide a debrief after the race for all the Laser sailors.

The LCDD is open to VLA members and has a skills development focus. We encourage all VLA members to come along and meet fellow Laser sailors. Just a reminder that the Lasers States are one week later!

The cost to participate is $30.00 per sailor. Bookings must be made via the Try Booking link below and entries close one week prior to the event. It is vital that we receive your booking so that we can ensure the correct coach to participant ratio.
