We are offering 4 exciting days of Match Racing in Athens. The lessons will take place in Yacht Club of Greece, Mikrolimano, on Beneteau Platu25 boats, with the support of the Hellenic Platu25 association.
Instructors of the clinic are the skippers and crews of the two most prominent Greek Match Racing Teams: Stratis Andreadis, Team Atalanti, 41 in World MR Ranking and Andreas Karalis, Team Aegean Ursa Minor, 94 in World MR Ranking.
Both teams are coached by Dave Perry, coach of the US Women’s Olympic Match Racing Team.
The clinic includes a mix of classroom sessions on Match Racing theory, on the water practice drills, video debriefings as well as full umpired matches. Up to 4 teams will be invited. Teams providing their own boat will have priority and get a discount. Teams will automatically receive invitations for the Grade 3 YCG Match Race (Oct 22-23).
Individuals who wish to follow the theoretical courses of the clinic may also apply.
We guarantee this experience will immensely improve your match racing performance, your sailing skills and your teamwork on board communication.
It will also help you calmly manage intense boat-to-boat sailing situations that occur in any sailboat race.
