Over the weekend I was coaching down at the VLA coaching camp.
The Victoria Laser Association were down at Indented Heads for a two day intensive camp. We had a variety of ages down at the event from 13 years old to guys in there late 70s.
There were over 30 sailors ready to get out on the water and put in some hard hours in the 20knots flat water. There is a lot of members preparing for there upcoming worlds be it Masters or Under 21.
I had a great time passing on as much knowledge as possible alongside Mark Tonner-Joyce the head VLA coach.
Indented Heads did a fanatics job feeding all the hungry sailors and helping out with pulling motor boats in & out of the...
Over the weekend we had the first week of the Laser 4.7 - 6 week transition program. There were 7 boats out on the water with a nice gentle 5knots of wind. We went through the basic of Tacking and in 5knots it is very tricky to roll the boat through the wind.

It has been an exciting month of sailing onboard team Wicked from Sandringham Yacht Club. Firstly I need to thank Mike & Mark Welsh for letting their boat make the journey & also the amount of work they did in preparing her for the race.
The preparation required to finish a Sydney to Hobart (S2H) is incredible. It's more like a roller coast ride on the way to the start line then in the race. We started in early December with the boats delivery to Sydney from Melbourne- it was a fun trip around the far Eastern corner of Victoria where we were hit with a fun 40knots & hit a new boat speed record for a Beneteau 40 going 21knots!! We then motored 18hours straight...
