Actually, we are going to do a team racing practice.

  1. boat handling warm up. focus on NOT over turning the FJ (or 420) downwind in a gybe. Roll, but be smooth.  If it’s light enough we may do (just for FJs) DW gybes rudderless so you can work on smoothing out your boat handling.
  2. (Yale) BALANCE DRILL:
    1. 2 on 2, round gate in opposite directions at the same time. Work with your teammate to balance pairs. Last boat loses to a finish line. This is a basic but critical drill that requires understanding of  BALANCING PAIRS. Make sure you know what that means.
    2. Switch Partners each time. I will likely set up 2 balance courses so we can do more at the same time.
  3. smile.
