Thanks to David Graham for providing a solid day's Laser coaching, taking us back to a time when the Laser was THE single handed boat of choice at RSC. 15 youth and adult Laser helms joined a full day of Laser coaching . Assisted by Ian Smith the day started with a look over David's own Laser to show how the boat should be rigged, then it was out onto the water for some boat control exercises, stopping the boat close to a buoy and holding position, practice for the all important line up to start a race. A "follow my leader" session saw a few enforced swims at the gybe turns as the wind strength increased, but as confidence grew the fleet were all soon able to deal with that. After lunch it was back on the water for some short sharp races. Hopefully everyone came away from the day with skills honed and the Laser the boat of choice for our youth helms. Well done to the more mature helms who stuck with us and hopefully now have a better understanding of how to sail their Lasers.
