Rose Cup Clinic and Regatta 2011 videos from Andrew Campbell.

Andrew writes:

This past weekend I traveled to Balboa Yacht Club in Newport Beach, CA for a clinic and qualification regatta for the Governor’s Cup, an annual Youth Match Race regatta held at BYC. Recently they have added feeder regattas to enter competitors into the Governor´s Cup and created the Rose Cup to encourage coaching and race-training for teams interested in qualifying for the main event.

We had nine teams for our clinic and eight teams for the regatta from all over the country. Most boats sail the Governor’s Cup 21-footers with three while a few sailed with four, but all in all I was very impressed by how the teams adapted and handled the excellent match racing platform that the 21s provide.

Here are three videos from the week. The first video is a compilation of highlights of the action from the clinic and the regatta. The second and third are great examples of the type of learning going on during our clinic. We see some excellent control from the Yellow entry (Chicago YC) against Blue (Annapolis YC) in the first training film. And in the second we see a great back-and-forth battle with the local team BYC (Green Spinnaker) also against AYC (Red Spinnaker). These were the types of segments we spent time talking about after sailing this weekend. Hopefully the teams will enjoy the commentary and be able to take something away from the experience.

Highlight Reel:



CYC = #11 Yellow (on the right) v. AYC = #12 Blue (on the left) *Note: Commentator mostly referring to Yellow:
