mar2023 3HSA Holds First 2023 Skills Clinic

On the afternoon of Sunday March 12th, 2023, the first sailing skills clinic for club members, held on club dinghies was a huge success. Seven experienced members coached 20 sailors on Sunfish, Capri 14.2s, Capri 16.5 and a Flying Scot.  Blocks of time were set up for the different boats, so members could sign up for one on one time to practice skills such as departing and returning to the dock or beach and tacks and jibes in the shifty, puffy southeast to southwest winds.  Thank you to ERAU for lending the safety boat for on the water support. The clinic scheduled on Saturday 3/11/23 was cancelled due to high winds. The positive response and suggestions from participants will make the next skills clinic even better.  The next dinghy clinic will be announced soon, as well as a similar clinic for the big boats.  This is a great chance to practice skills while getting to know each other on and off the water.
