UPDATE FROM DAY 2 AT 420 CLINIC IN MEXICO
Day 2 of the five day 420 Class Coaches and Sailors Clinic in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico was packed with on-water practical and shoreside theory sessions.
Led by Head Coach Riccardo de Felice (ITA), the coaches and sailors started the day with a theory class focused on windward and leeward techniques with emphasis on light and medium winds. In the afternoon, training continued afloat in a breeze of 11-12 knots. Long legs and tacks to familiarize were followed by short, sharp manouvres. Day two ended with debrief of the theory and practical sessions.
The Clinic is being run by the International 420 Class in partnership with the Mexican 420 National Class Association and the Mexican Navy from 5-9 March.
The 420 Class Clinic in Mexico is the first of eight clinics taking place in 2017 across North America, Caribbean, Europe and Asia.
