2020 Coaches and Sailors Clinic - Lago Calima, Colombia - Day 3 report
Our 420 Coaches and Sailors Clinic successfully continues in Lago Calima, Colombia, hosted by Club Nautico del Pacifico. This 420 Coaches and Sailors Clinics are part of our 2020 420 Development Programme.
From Mr. Jose Massapina - Vice-President - Int. 420 Class.
Today, the24th of February, we were on the third day of the 420 Coaches and Sailors Clinic at Lago Calima, Andes Mountain Range at 1.600 meters of altitude. It was very hot early in the morning and the sun made us to cover ourselves with sun protector. As we said before, we found here a big group with basic level and so, we delayed a little bit the programme of the first and second day.
Today we were introducing the spinnaker. We did an explanation ashore and then we went afloat for the practical exercises while we have light wind as in the afternoon we have always a strong térmic wind that goes up to 25 knots. We returned to shore again to have lunch at about 12:30 and went back to the water at 13:30.
Once ashore again, we have been watching the videos of the morning water session with the spinnaker exercises and discussing it, and then we went afloat again. Finally we returned to the class room again for debriefing and some theoretical about starting.
