Gill National Youth Development Squad - Session 4

White Mirror dinghy running with spinnaker

The weekend was based on strategy. From a helm's perspective I feel like my knowledge on shifts have improved and I need to improve on my lay lines. On the first day we started off with some gybing and tacking on the whistle then went into some races concentrating on strategy upwind and downwind and we played the game "Bob",

where one boat is named Bob for the race then the other boats have to always be on the different tack or gybe to Bob, which was good and really made you think about your decisions up the beat and downwind. On the second day we did some more races and played some more Bob.
