The half term training will once again be held at Kinsale Yacht Club in February 2023. Kinsale have once again kindly agreed to host the 420s at this fabulous sailing location, and equally important Kinsale is also a great location for parents to enjoy a break when sailors are occupied all day long.
The training will be led by Graame Grant and supported by Cara McDowell with the help of a number of our younger coaches who are progressing through their own training pathway. Our coaching events are renowned for the quality of coaching provided and the coaches see Kinsale week as an important kick off for the new year where each team can set out a plan for their individual aspirations for the year.
The week of coaching will be followed by the Munsters regional regatta and it is not only a great opportunity to develop skills but it is also a time for sailors and parents from different clubs to meet up and enjoy the events. As well as the daily training it is proposed to host some evening events so that everyone, parents and sailors, can socialise together whilst enjoying some food with talks on sailing.
The Kinsale training is organised by the 420 Association, it is open training for all 420 sailors no matter what their level of experience in the boat. The focus is on providing quality training that can be difficult for some sailors to receive locally at their own clubs. We look forward to welcoming as many sailors as possible for the week.
