Thursday DAY 5

Another very wet and windy day, but after a few exercises all went out for a short jog. Returning back refreshed but wet it was back to the classroom.
Todays Guest Coach is Sam Watson, current National Champion. Starts were the main topic of the morning with a complete analysis of what to think about.

After a lunch break it was off to the workshop where one of the rigged boats was turned on its side and with the main sail having a bucket of water floating in it we saw perfectly what outhaul, kicker and downhaul does to the shape of the sail.

This was followed each of the crews sitting in the boat and practicing tacking and gybing manoeuvres.

By 3.30 the wind gods were smiling at us and by 4pm all the boats were afloat until dusk. A good finish to the day.
