KSSA Promoting Youth Sailing in Kent
Rs Feva coaching at Redoubt SC

After receiving the Maidstone coaching award last season, a feva coaching day was arranged for early March, at Redoubt sailing club (our winter club), with the coach Richard Sherindan from Sevenoaks. We arrived at the club and the weather couldn’t have been better, with a steady force three to four and sunshine we rigged up along with Michael and Sam Dyer ready for a day on the water.

Initially we covered a bit of theory focusing on upwind controls and spinnaker angles and then put this into practice joining in with the club race. Throughout the rest of the day, we had the lake to ourselves and we worked on spinnaker angles, upwind boat speed and controls in perfect conditions. Rich was an amazing coach and we think we both picked up a lot from spending time with him. This has been very beneficial and we have both noticed a difference in our sailing.

Thank you again to all that helped make this possible- Rich the coach, Brian Mumford for organising the day, Michael and Sam for coming over with their Feva and finally KSSA for the coaching award.
