Racing isn’t everything, teach children to have fun sailing.

Who says racing is the only way to acquire sailing skills? Teach children that sailing is fun and watch the numbers grow. For some reason, the teaching of sailing skills in many countries where sailing is an active pursuit has over the years changed from learning the ropes on a local body of water from an experienced friend to a rigorously structured multi-year racing-based certification process.

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.

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.
