ITCA (GBR) Topper Training at Hamble River Sailing Club

by Roger Cerrato 21 Apr 11:45 PDT 20 April 2024

We were blessed with perfect weather for the ITCA (GBR) coaching day at Hamble River Sailing Club on Saturday April 20th. An ideal mix of sunshine and medium breeze!

Three coaches kept the fifteen sailors busy over two sessions afloat, initially working on boat handling in the river for the morning before going out into Southampton Water for the afternoon. Focused then shifted to starting exercises in preparation for Sunday's Topper Open.
