Installing The Ability To Repair

Installing the ability to… (jimmy it up) and keep going.

A big part of doing well in sailing, is our ability to fix broken parts with whats stashed in our lifejacket. Remember as a coach its important to get your sailor to the start line but you should also give them a chance when ever time allows, to make the repair themselves. Its so tempting to quickly jump in and save the day, but we must remember its important for the sailor to learn how to repair the boat as well. If we fix the problem they will not learn and they will expect someone will always come to the rescue.

This is an interesting article and it shows how important it is for us as coaches to get hold of the class rules understand them.

The next process is to get the sailors to start looking into the class rules and develop their understanding. 

Then together we can look at the rules and find ways we can develop our boats thinking of ways to work within the rule that will gain a competitive advantage.
