Day 2 - On the Water

Hosted by the Old Greenwich Yacht Club

with the support of Indian Harbor Yacht Club



This session of the Clinic will be coached by Dave Perry. Dave is well known for his highly instructive, interactive and fun clinics. A five-time, and current reigning, U.S. National Match Racing champion and a two-time Congressional Cup champion, Dave is also a 2-time Hinman Masters Champion, and active participant in the current club-level keelboat team racing circuit. He is also the author of three books on racing, including the best seller Winning in One-Designs, which he will have available for sale and signing at the clinic.

Dave will coach the tactics and strategies needed to be competitive and successful in Team Racing, including the Pre-Start, Upwind and Downwind Tactics plays. On the water, Dave will run the sailors through all the scenarios, with on-the-spot feedback, and video replay after sailing. In addition, he will give much instruction and feedback on how to handle and sail an Ideal 18 fast.
