Lark Training and Open Meeting - 13/14 April 2019
The big Lark weekend at Frensham on Saturday 13th and Sunday 14th April is getting close. Training on the Saturday and the Open on Sunday; the latter will be shared with the RS200s.
Below are the details of both our events:
Lark Training on Saturday 13th April, 2019
This is being funded by the Lark Class and Clive Eplett is our coach for the day, which is great. The coaching will be for all levels with a lot of individual feedback and guidance, particularly using video in the post race debriefing.
The plan is to build the sessions around the needs of those attending. It will include a mix of the on and off-the-water coaching. The likely format is:
- 1000 Rig
- 1100 Introduction, discussion about needs, Q and A, Lark tips
- 1145 Boat set up
- 1230 On water coaching – Clive Eplett
- 1330 Lunch
- 1505 Club Handicap race, with videoing
- 1630 Tea
- 1645 Debrief
- 1800 Curry and beer for those staying overnight
Please could you let me know if you are coming for the Training Day.
