• MATCH RACING CLINICS


    As part of a world wide promotion of match racing, North U is organizing a series of Clinics and Clinegattas (a clinic folllowed by a regatta with coaching) which are intended to introduce racing sailors to the thrills, skills and techniques of match racing.

    Clinic Curriculum

    The Match Racing Clinic Curriculum was created by Dave Perry and Liz Baylis with assistance from North U. Two formats are available: A full 3 day format, or a 2 plus format (one evening followed by 2 full days).

    You’ll learn about dial ups, circling, lead / push, the hook, the shift right and many other match racing tactics during shoreside sessions, and then head out on the water to do them. On the water sessions include a series of drills, exercises, practice starts and races designed to emphasize the development of match racing knowhow.

    Sign Up as One or as a Team

    The clinics are open to men and women. You can sign up as a team or individually.

    Schedules and Fees

    As clinics are scheduled for 2012, they will be listed on our Seminar Schedule Page.  Contact us if there’s nothing in your area. Fees and format vary by location.
