Dr Phipps I presume…. Lake Malawi

Lake Malawi

Brian and Coookie have recently shipped their complete repertoire of Windsport coaching  skills abroad to central Africa to the shores of Lake Malawi to run a training week for the Dart 18 sailors based there.

Over the intensive week Brian covered boat preparation and maintenance, dry land lessons and skills followed by on the water sessions.  A combination of sailing skills and racing techniques allow all sailors to gain greater boat handling skills alongside a more focused understanding of how to gain a competitive edge around a race course.

The course concluded with several short races putting all the skills into practice.
