Hampton Yacht Club hosted a very successful c420 clinic this past weekend. Fourteen boats full of high school and a few talented Opti Sailors filled out the fleet. The clinic was coached by United States Naval Academy Assistant Coach Matt Peter and Old Dominion Assistant Coach Morgan Collins. The clinic is a hopeful sign for a full return to double-handed junior sailing for next summer!
The clinic’s objective was to introduce mainly high school sailors to the c420, educate proper trapeze form, and how to utilize a spinnaker. A second group’s focus was to work on the sail trim and boat handling of already developed c420 teams!
