Miami Sailors Take Note! Get In Summer Sailing Shape With Anderson Sailing
Hey everyone! We are stoked to announce our first ever on-the-water clinic this summer in Miami FL for local Miami sailors! Alec Anderson, sailor extraordinaire is hosting a series of weekend clinics this summer for local RWB Optimist sailors and we'll be filming it!
Here's the breakdown:
About Alec Anderson
Alec is a professional sailor and Opti Coach based in Miami, FL - 3 time college All-American, Laser Radial North American Champion, College Team Race National Champion, and sailed the heck out of some Optis back in the day, with some top finishes at several Opti Worlds
The Game Plan
Get a condensed clinic-style training with top level sail coaching from Alec Anderson over several weekends where you can participate in all or just a couple - the idea is that although we don't know when regattas will return, we have to be ready! And as we all know the best way to learn boat handling and speed control is through Team Racing.
We'll be covering:
Clinic weekends will be based out of the Coconut Grove Sailing Club and is open to any RWB Optimist Sailor that resides in Miami or Broward Counties - and is limited to 10 spots each weekend.*
You'll have to bring your own boat, and lunch is available at the Coconut Grove Sailing Club or you can bring your own.
REGISTER by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
