We are grateful for well-known sailor, sail-maker, and coach Graeme Robbins taking time out of his busy schedule to come down and do some coaching for us. If you don’t know who he is, you should! Not only is he a world-class sailor in his own right, he is an experienced coach at all levels from LTS to Olympic competition; on top of that the sails he makes have been used by a lot of winners in this class (at least), and he’s the current measurer for the Sunburst class.
Coaching will run from about 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. for the three days (Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday) with a break for lunch midday (byo); in addition to our own fleet of P-Class sailors, a few will be coming down from Christchurch’s Mt Pleasant yacht club to take part, and we’re happy to have them.
We are looking forward to having an enthusiastic and experienced coach help us go faster while having fun on the water. Thanks Graeme!
