Class Coaching

Aug 14th, Friday, 2020

Inland pot sail training has been organised in 2020 to be held at Girton SC, one of the trickiest venues on the Supernova circuit.

We all know, and respect that sea sailing is the pinnacle of our sport; however, 13 of the 15 2020 venues are Inland lakes.

So Alistair Goodwin has agreed to coach the fleet in the dark arts of inland Lake sailing.

This is just as well because the fleet moves on to Attenborough SC on the Sunday.

More on Attenborough in their event teaser but suffice to say, It is the utmost inland challenge!
