420 Connachts & Coaching Clinic
The 420 Connachts will be hosted at GBSC on 2nd & 3rd July 2011.
Ahead of the racing coaching is available for all prospective participants, whether seasoned racers or sailors new to the class. The coaching clinic will be run by GBSC and will include Will Leech, Rob Lehane and Ruardhri de Faoite. Participants can come for either a 5 day (Mon-Fri) or 3 day (Weds-Fri) coaching clinic. This will give sailors who have spent lots of time stuck in their books to blow away the cobwebs and get fully tuned-up for the championship racing at the weekend.
John Leech, PRO for championship remarked: "GBSC is delighted to welcome the 420 fleet back to Galway Bay for the Connacht Championships. Galway is a superb centre for sailing activity as was demonstrated when the Volvo Ocean Race visited. It's a great opportunity for visiting 420 sailors to enjoy good racing and have some fun with the active fleet of 420s based here."
