Learning to sail
I was reading an article this morning about hoe to attract youngsters to sailing and how to keep their interest in sailboat racing when their peers have no interest in sailing. I know when i started to sail I was very lucky as my parents took me to Newquay every summer and I learnt to sail from an early age surrounded by youngsters of a similar age all keen on sailboat racing. And of course we saw sailors in the 20s, 30s,40s and older so sailboat racing became a part of my life.
I was really please when we received the recent review by Nigel Cochrane the Candaian Olymic Team coach who said
“The Wot-tac was an invaluable tool for me as a coach at the Olympic Games in London 2012. It was the most reliable coaching aid I had and it allowed me to quickly analyze the course orientation and which end of the line was favoured. I would highly recommend this device for any serious coach or keelboat racer or even possibly a dinghy sailor if they were able to keep it close at hand.”
And we also had another review from David Wright of the Canadian Olympic team
“It is a very innovative and simple device that eliminates any doubt in your math to give you the precise geometry quickly and easily”
I’ve always known that the wot-tac should be an indispensable part of every sailboat racers kitbag.
