420 Coaching focuses on minimising mistakes ahead of day 3 at Youth Worlds
As the Championship reaches the half-way stage on race day 3 at the Youth Worlds, 420 Class appointed coach Nikos Drougkas was keen to spend time with teams to ensure the easy mistakes were avoided.
During today's morning briefing session, Drougkas focused on
Boat preparation - before racing run speed tests upwind and downwind, with a focus on the technique to be chosen downwin, and body position
Perfecting the Start - ensure there is no risk of an OCS, as the wind was so shifty that the race is still anyone's game whatever the start
Race Strategy - preparing a good race strategy plan, particularly on mark roundings, not crossing laylines and use of the boomvang
Weather - making full use of all weather information
