Day 2 report - 2022 High Level Coaches Clinic in Italy
Second day of the 2022 420 High-Level Coaches Clinic in Imperia, Italy, started with a very good session of Lucas Parisi, the physical coach of Federazione Italiana de Vela, talking about physical preparation and prevention of injuries of the 420 young athletes. This is a very important and critical issue as the coaches are dealing with youngsters already growing up.
After this session, took place the boat tuning moment which is always a good issue. As part of the lecture, we also saw the Class development tool 420 Tuning Video.
After lunch we had a session of Boat Preparation and the coach Leonardo Zaggia went afloat with some sailors. It was windy, with a good swell and very cold. So, after some capsizes, they came ashore.
Tomorrow as a complement of the physical preparation, we will have a session about nutrition.
Report by Mr. Jose Massapina, 420 class Chairperson and Director of the 420 Development Programme.
