2024 Nationals - 5.3 Fleet Coach Support DEPOSIT

Weymouth & Portland National Sailing Academy

3rd - 9th August 2024

ITCA (GBR) have arranged coach support for 5.3 Sailors at the Nationals this year.

The coaches will be Sally Dugdale and Issy Smith.

The coaches will be available to give a briefing in the mornings before launching - this is usually after the main briefing for all sailors.  They will then be on the water watching the racing and will be able to give any help and advice between races and finally at the end of the day, they will be available to give a debrief on the day's racing.

The coach support will also include a pre-event training session, probably on the Saturday to familiarise sailors with the venue.

Please be aware, that the coaches will be part of the safety fleet and should the CSL (Course Safety Lead) deem that the conditions require her assistance then the support RIB may not available between races.

Should any sailor become involved in a protest then the coaches will be there to help. They can assist with completing forms and can attend any protest hearing as support but is unable to comment on the sailor’s behalf.

Finally, we always arrange for the support boat to carry additional food and drinks for the sailors and extra spare kit in case of breakages.

The cost for the support is £200 per sailor. A non-refundable £50 deposit is required now to secure your place on the coach support. The remaining balance will be due by 31st May 2024 (payment details to be notified later).
