The training and coaching weekend on 2-3 Oct was a great success, despite a distinct lack of wind. The training weekend coincided with Black Rock's 1st races for the 2004-05 summer season. There were 25 participants on Sat and about 18 on Sun. Wayne Bates, Lindsay Irwin and Barry Eastgate discussed rigging, sails, general boat setup on Sat am, followed by an excellent BBQ put on by Bob Smythe and then into what should have been 2 back-to-back short races. We only completed 1 shortened race.

The range of experience of participants was from people who had never raced before to top 10 place getters at the Nationals and States...you can always learn something. Most of the Sun program was dedicated to boat handling, race starting and when the wind permitted, short 200 metre races.

Start of season coaching and training weekends have been held for the past 4 years and has grown in numbers each year. For those who missed out, the Vic Assoc plans to hold the training weekend again next year.

Thanks to the following for coaching, support and organision of the weekend.

Fiopna McCulloch, Wayne Bates, Lindsay Irwin, Barry Eastgate, John Dixon, Bob Smythe and Steve Early (Sun)
