Let's sail Skylark to her full potential! In this training session for members of the racing development squad, we'll work on perfecting our tacks, gybes and spinnaker hoists/drops, hone our boatspeed with advanced sail trim, and drill race starts and mark roundings. We'll rotate round the various crew positions so that everyone develops all-round competence and confidence for sailing on any racing yacht.
We'll arrive in Ipswich on Friday evening and immediately set off down the Orwell to spend the night on a buoy in the Stour. Saturday and Sunday will be full-on days of racing drills outside Harwich, and we'll be taking the last train back to Cambridge on Sunday.
Having fun close reaching under symmetric spinnaker on Skylark!
