Over the weekend of 10th and 11th November 2018 the Perth Dinghy Sailing held it's Annual "Perth Waters Coaching Regatta."

The Regatta is designed primarily for the coaching of sailors whilst in racing conditions. The event is run by holding 10 short course races over the Saturday and Sunday. Races are held in the both the mornings and afternoons, this enables the competitors to get the opportunity to sail in the morning soft breezes, then in the afternoons with the steady sea breeze.

The PDSC this year engaged a number of our own homegrown sailing Championship as the Coaches, who have passed on their experiences and knowledge to the competitors.

This year's Coachers were led by our Race Officer – Warren Drew, who has now been involved for the past four years. Warren apart from doing the RO duties on the start boat also did coaching of the competitors and making sure they all were up on the start line in the best positions.

This year's coaches were: Brien Hennessy, Russell Hanrahan, Emilia Horn, Dale Oakley, Ian Furlong and Denis Jones. All these Coaches are highly regarded within the WA sailing community.
