Day 2 at the 2021 Coaches and Sailors Clinic in Thailand
Report by the Class President and Development Programme's Director Mr. Jose Massapina.
We had a great and enthusiastic second day of clinic here in Sattahip, Thailand.
The sailors and coaches are showing motivation and improving a lot with what they are learning here.
The day started with a small theoretical session on the classroom about mark rounding and about hoisting and dropping the spinnaker and also gibing with it.
After the lectures, a practical session took place on the boat park and then, after a light lunch, the group went afloat to practice on the water what they learned ashore.
The fleet got sun and a convenient light wind during all the afternoon and just coming ashore, arrived a front with hard rain, lightnings and strong winds.
As the sailors went well on the water, in the final of the day we bought “Tokyos” (a kind of a crepe) to everyone.
