Open Training + Transitioning Boat Training

Weymouth & Portland National Sailing Academy

31st August-1st September 2019

For those sailors looking to kick start their 29er training this winter, the 29er uk Class are offering transitioning training at WPNSA at the end of August. The aim of the weekend will be to get wet, spending maximum time afloat and help push past the first real obstacles of 29er sailing gaining control of the boat.


To make sure we can get sailing, and help share as many tips as possible we will be putting our coaches in the boat. We’ve amassed a group of former 29er sailors, straight from the front of the fleet who will be jumping in and out of boats to give on the water demonstrations and advice while sailing with you.


Some of you might already be well stuck in to your 29er transition, and spending more time sailing together with a coach observing from the rib, providing input would be more sensible. We will be filming and analysing what you do, to help you see any areas for improvement.


For those sailors wishing to get a place in the Development Squad this weekend will be used as an indicator, so if you want to be considered for that squad this winter, attend the training and show the coaches how ready you are to learn.
