Laser Training Success

We welcomed Alistair Goodwin to Budworth S.C. on Saturday 24th April to provide a day of Laser coaching. 9 sailors from our Standard and Radial fleets took part in what turned out to be an excellent and informative session in lovely weather.

The day started with a Q&A while we were waiting for the forecasted Easterly breeze to fill in. Common questions were about starting and downwind sailing, where Alistair offered some great advice and insight into how the 'pros' sail.

Before lunch the wind filled-in to a variable 5-10 knots ENE-ESE, so we took to the water for some starting practice, including reversing on the start line, which proved tricky for us all!

After lunch we were back on the water for upwind boat speed practice followed by intense tacking and gybing drills.

During the final de-brief it was clear everyone had enjoyed the day immensely and learnt a lot. Thank you Alistair!
