Argentina 420 Class Association runs 420 Clinic in Buenos Aires
Over the weekend of 17-18 May 2015, the Argentinean 420 Class Association hosted a 420 Clinic at the Club Universitario de Buenos Aires for members from various clubs and at different skill levels.
The clinic kicked off on Saturday morning with registration and a “free” breakfast to bring everyone together ahead of the first brief and allocation into groups. Before heading out on the water, teams focused on rigging and boat preparation. A light breeze of around 4-6 knots, which persisted over both days, made the conditions quite a challenge, with lots of patience required.
On Saturday afternoon, coach Diego Ravecca gave a talk about the 420, explaining the different types of regattas and international competitions, achieving competition goals and the sailing pathways after the 420.
The groups were changed around on Sunday, with more spent time on boat familiarisation and set up. Races helped teams put their knowledge into practice and the day wrapped up with debriefs, video analysis and burgers!
