Race Team Lecture Night
Hosted by SBYSF Coach Willie McBride, the first Race Team Lecture Night was a resounding success! We had ten sailors attend, with a good mix of Race Team and JV Team members. Willie started the evening with a few slides about how to set goals and get the most out of the sport, and then moved on to a lecture on starting tactics. Using a “sailing animation” program, he was able to create short clips of boats moving around a starting area, which was extremely useful for the sailors as they tried to digest the complicated tactics.
The two large pizzas that showed up halfway through the evening were gone in a flash. The next lecture night is on Tuesday, Feb. 15th from 6-7:30pm…and I’ll make sure to have enough pizza for everyone!
