Howard Hamlin Graciously organized another fantastic training weekend on the west coast and provided the following report. The American Section recently voted to devote more funding for these training events next year so keep your eye out for the 2014 schedule and plan to attend. No better way to get up to speed and see what the top sailors in the class are doing to improve their game!

We had 21 boats show up for 4 days of fantastic warm sailing out of Alamitos Bay YC.  We sailed almost 40 races, averaging about 10 per day.  Jay and Pease Glaser ran a pre-brief in the morning, then set the course and provided on the water coaching followed by a de-brief at the end of each day where everyone shared information.  We had a range of wind from 4 knots to 15 knots with the vast majority of sailing in wire running conditions.

I consistently heard from everyone how this format was more fun and more beneficial than any regular regatta.  The Glaser’s saw dramatic improvement over the weekend.  Thanks so much to Jay and Pease and all those who attended, providing good ideas and some fantastic tight racing.  Here is who attended:
