The 2011 Sabot Development Live in Camp will be held at Noosa Yacht and Rowing Club from the 1st April.
The weekend live in Camp, developed by NYRC Sailing Coordinator Paul Blundell, is now in its third year and has again been adopted by Yachting Queensland as part of the Identification and Development Pathway Program. The Queensland Identification and Development Pathway (QIDP) was developed to enable all junior and youth sailors to attend training camps and have the potential to be identified as an up and coming sailor by Queensland Sailing Team (QST) coaches and talent identifiers. The aim is to have a QST coach at programmed training camps and priority regattas throughout QLD to help junior and youth sailors develop and progress through the sport of sailing. Developing growth in participation is another major goal and a hopeful by product of the QIDP, the Queensland Development Sailing Team and Queensland Sailing Team.
Headed by Blundell, the camp coach line up is again a who’s who of sailing in Queensland. Australian Youth Olympic Coach - Ben Callard, Queensland High Performance Coach - Adrian Finglas, South Queensland Sabot Association Coach – Tim Robba, Australian Sailing Development Squad member – Ryan Palk, Queensland High Performance Squad member – Klade Hauschildt, NYRC Sabot Coach – Ali Blundell and 2010 National Contender Youth Champion and Sabot Coach - James Dahl.
The added advantage of the Noosa camp is that all the coach’s are ex-sabot sailors who competed at dozens of national championship’s between them giving the kids the benefit of experienced ‘class specific’ coaching second to none.
