UK Youth Winter Training - Chew Valley, Bristol, UK
08/12/2018 - 09/12/2018

Write-Up

RS Aero UK Youth Winter Training - Chew Valley LSC, Bristol, 8/9 Dec
Weekend #2 of the 6 weekend Youth Winter Training Programme
 
Thanks to Andrew Frost for his summary report from a breezy youth training weekend at Chew;
 
This weekend was focused on tactics, and ensuring that you were always in a position to make up places upwind and downwind. Coaches for the weekend were Ross Harvey, Ben Whaley, Liam Willis and Emily Covell, bringing in some new talent and ideas to the team for the weekend.
 
The RS Aero Youth Team sailors ventured out onto a very gusty Chew Valley on Saturday morning and after a few capsizes and turtles, including one myself, the decision was made to come back into shore. With the wind increasing throughout the day a number of sailors went back out in the afternoon for a blast and a lot of planing. In the evening a great quiz was made and 4 teams battled it out with the RS Aero 7 team narrowly beating the RS Aero 5 girls team (which included coach Ross!) by 1/3rd of a point! Thanks to Harken and RS Sailing for the quiz prizes!
 
Sunday morning dawned and the expected strong winds never fully materialised, only in the gusts, and 2 more controlled sessions were achieved where the sailors could focus on the tips learnt from the coaches on the day before.
 
Overall a good weekend was had by all, and the Rooster RS Aero Youth Team are looking forward to a short break before the next Youth Winter Training at Rutland SC on 5/6th January. That weekend is open to all comers, youth and adults, details and sign up in advance via HERE.
