The clinic is targeted for youth sailors ages 15 – 24 who are interested in learning more about match racing, and in raising their sailing skill level. No match racing or keelboat sailing experience is needed or expected.
This Clinic will be coached by Dave Perry. Dave Perry is the Chairman of the US Sailing Match Racing Committee, a coach for the 2009-2012 US Women's Olympic Match Racing effort, a five-time U.S. National Match Racing champion, and a two-time Congressional Cup champion.
Dave will coach the tactics and strategies needed to be competitive and successful in Match Racing on the National level, including the Pre-Start, Upwind and Downwind Tactics, and Killing Penalties. On the water, Dave will run the sailors through all the scenarios, with on-the-spot feedback, and video replay after sailing. In addition, he will give much instruction and feedback on how to handle the spinnaker and sail a boat fast.
