GO FOR GOLD Regatta - Black Rock YC 24/25 Nov 2012

Go for Gold Regatta remains Australia’s only true ‘coaching’ regatta where recognised coaches can be in the race area during the entire event. This gives sailors and coaches the unique opp

ortunity of immediate feedback and improvement from their coaches in a real race environment.
This year, the Sabre class have arranged on-water coaching with Brett Young and video in the form of both in-boat (GoPro cameras onboard) and rescue boat footage during racing. Brett Young and Gary McLennan will be collecting the video footage and conducting a debrief after racing each day. A good Sabre fleet is expected and sailors are encouraged to enter the regatta this week.

At the 2012 Victorian Sabre Training Weekend at Black Rock, Chris Dance and Peter Hackett demonstrated their silky boat handling skills with perfectly executed roll tacks and gybes. We're standing on the jetty with the general public and coach Gary McLennan can be heard in the distant background until Wayne Bates' booming voice tells him to move closer!

The Sabre Association of Victoria will be running the annual coaching weekend on the 13th and 14th of October 2012 at Black Rock Yacht Club. VIC Sabre AGM Sunday 14th from 9:45am.

There will be on water sessions on both days and some shore based activities depending on the weather.  There are usually over 30 boats so it’s a good crowd and a chance to get to know a lot of Sabre people from around Victoria.  The coaching has always been of a very high standard and you can expect this year to be the same with various State and National Champions in the team. Training Program will be posted before the end of the week.
