On January 31st, the Sailing Foundation hosted its eighth annual Coaches Clinic for Northwest Youth Racing Programs. The clinic was held at the Mt. Baker Rowing and Sailing Center, 3800 Lake Washington Blvd, Seattle.
Featured speakers included Andrew Nelson, Brendan Fahey, and Dick Rose. There were also two brainstorming sessions during the day to develop ideas for improving NW summer regatta participation, and strengthening college sailing.
There was a district meeting of the NWISA high school coaches before the clinic and a district meeting of the NWICSA college coaches immediately after the clinic.
Over fifty coaches and program leaders attended our 2015 clinic, representing high school sailing teams, college sailing teams and yacht club programs in Washington and Oregon.
