DYS Training - 5th March 2016

Written by

On 5th March, Burton SC hosted Derbyshire Youth Sailing (DYS) in their final training session in preparation for NSSA Double Handed Team Racing event taking place at Farmoor Reservoir on the 19th March. The training event was led by James Hadden (Swarkestone SC and Team GBR Podium Potential Finn sailor), and Zac Bermon and Michael Marshall from Loughborough University. This training event built upon the learning from the previous training event where the sailors gained experience sailing Firefly dinghies in teams of two boats, and started learning team racing tactics. The second training event combined classroom work on tactics and time on the water putting the theory into practice when under pressure in close racing formation. This allowed the teams to develop their skills and confidence in the Team Racing format, particularly with Zac sailing with a number of the sailors to demonstrate various tactics.

The two teams representing DYS, including Henry Merton from Burton SC Youth Academy are now looking forward to the NSSA event on the 19th March fully prepared for the excitement of Team Racing at a national event.
