NO WIND ON DAY 3 AT 420 UKRAINIAN CLINIC SETS NEW CHALLENGES
No wind this morning, Friday 3 May, at the 420 Class Coaches and Sailors Clinic in the Ukraine, so time was spent doing land drills for gybing and mark roundings.
After a short lunch break all coaches and sailors went afloat to practice their newly learnt techniques. Sailors swapped around within the boats, enabling those that had sailed 420s before to help the newcomers to the class.
After a 2 1/2 hour on water session, time to head back ashore to the host club, the Black Sea Yacht Club, for the video debrief. For the coaches and sailors’ overnight homework, 420 Class coach Nikos Drougkas has asked everyone to identify the mistakes they made today and what they can do better tomorrow.
The 420 Class Coaches and Sailors Clinic at the Black Sea Yacht Club, Ukraine has 17 coaches and sailors from Lithuania and Ukraine for five days of expert coaching advice from Nikos Drougkas, Greece from 1-5 May 2019.
