Northern Feva Open Training Event – Leigh and Lowton 28th -29th January
Northern Feva Open Training
A fantastic time was had at Leigh and Lowton Sailing Club by the 18 sailors who took to part in the Northern Feva open training this weekend.
The weekend focus was starting techniques and top coach Dave Hivey did not waste any time setting out his expectations and goals for the weekend. Following a detailed briefing first thing the sailors were put through their paces on the water and soon found out that Dave was clearly of the view that there was room for improvement on both starting techniques and downwind tactics.
After lunch the sailors were given a further detailed debrief by Dave on downwind tactics and had lots of short races targeted at starting and boat handling skills in light and shifty conditions. A lot of fun and laughter was had by all with Dave only having to occasionally raise his voice in frustration!!
The fun and laughter continued into the evening with a number of the sailors taking part in probably one of the longest ever game of Killer Darts on record.
Sunday morning soon came around and we had to break thick ice on boat covers and the whole lake with the use of the Ribs!! The wind finally arrived by midday and the sailors were all keen to get on the water after an early lunch for a further session of short races focusing on communication, team work (whilst sailing backwards) and starting techniques.
A great weekend of sailing was had by all and everyone appeared to have thoroughly enjoyed it and benefited from the session, even if it was a little cold! Looking forward to the next training weekend on 11 & 12 February at Beaver sailing club.
