Coaching at Thorpe Bay Yacht Club

Last weekend TBYC Hurricanes held a pre Training and Nationals Tuning session First measurements were taken and recorded, then comparisons made between boats and the Hurricane Tuning Guide before crews decided what changes they should make. The session was very useful and great to discuss and compare the setting, rake and tension people used, as well as noticing any maintenance and ropes that needed attention.

John Ready and Andy Bedford will be at TBYC next Saturday 18th July for an on the water training day.  All are welcome to attend, just let Jeremy and Julian know please by email jeremysandford@hotmail.com
