Weymouth Dinghy Regatta

Tim Rush was the coach at Carsington on Friday May 25th at the first Osprey free class coaching day. News of the success of these days has spread, so we welcomed a couple of Javelins joining in.

It was windy all day, so Tim concentrated on upwind setup for strong winds. Re the mainsail, he covered rake, getting boom in right position in/ out, how to flatten the main big time, and centreboard position. After taking footage of us all in morning, he gave us chat at lunch about set up, then went out to see us put it into practice.

Generally, the advice was to pull things even harder than we did already. This had the desired effect, and made the boats much more controllable and hence faster n flatter. Some people enjoyed experimenting by taking centreboard up to half to see what happened. Javelins enjoyed the sessions too, think there were about 5 Ospreys and 2 Javelins.

Tim will be coaching for us again, on the first day of the Weymouth Nationals. Meanwhile, the next coaching day is the Friday preceding Sheppey open in June.

We also had a popular sail measuring session, with quite a few sailors having acquired new rags for the season.
