Level Up Your Sail Racing Knowledge: Sail Faster, Safer, and Increase Your Competitive Edge!

DC Sail is launching a new series of sensational “Racing Clinics.” The clinics will focus on Flying Junior racing techniques and will be an opportunity for further education for those that have completed the Intro to FJ course or with pre-existing FJ experience. (*While participation in the Adult Racing Program 2023 Series is not required, relevant FJ experience is required to participate in the Clinics.) 

When: Clinics will run on the dates listed below and will be two hours in duration from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM, coinciding with Monday and Wednesday Member Sails. Instruction will involve both shore-based and on-the-water activities. Please bring your lifejacket.

Lead Instructor & Curriculum: The clinics will be taught by our talented and knowledgeable Coach Cam Costello, who in addition to his extensive sailing and PRO race management experience, also holds a US Sailing Level 1 Sailing Instructor certificate.

Each clinic course curriculum will focus on a specific topic as outlined below.

Cost: The cost is $30.00 per clinic session.

Please note: Active/current paid DC Sail Membership is required to participate in the training.
