Ladies it is time to lift off those blankets and dust off your wet suits.
The sailing season is beginning with
  • free Women's Laser coaching
  • 5th September 2015
  • at Point Chevalier Yacht Club
  • coached by Mike Bullot
  • email : grassc@gmail.com
organised by the NZ Laser Association.

It will be another eventful sailing season finishing off in 2016 with the Auckland Women Laser Champs on 30th April. These are just some of the events to get you all up and ready for the Masters World Games in April 2017. You can all participate in the games with a bit of practice and help.

And help is what you will get on Saturday 5th September with a great coach to brush up your skills, our coach will be Mike Bullot a talented member of the 2015 YNZ sailing team, who came 3rd in the Oceanbridge Sail Auckland Regatta this year.
 


How can I attend?
Email Chantal at  grassc@gmail.com by 29th August if you are interested in attending, then I can advise Mike and the Point Chevalier Yacht Club of the numbers. There will be some yummy baking by the Club members to be enjoyed after a hard day on the water.

What do I need to bring?
Yourself.
Boat - If you have your own boat, it is preferable that you bring it for the coaching session so that any adjustment tips learnt can be customised to your boat. If you do not have a boat and want to attend Point Chevalier Yacht Club has some lasers that could be used, please let us know and we will put you in contact with the Club.

What else can I do?
Bring a sailing friend.
Find members of the 1979 Women Laser team and get them back into Laser Sailing.  This coaching session would be a great refresher for them. (See photo below)
