Formula Windsurfing Training at Carsington

12 October 2005

British Formula Champion Keith Atkinson will be passing on his knowledge and experience in a Formula training session on 19-20th November at Carsington Reservoir. The course will be biased towards Formula sailors. The aim of the course is to get yourself and your gear set-up to suit you. This is your chance to learn how to set-up and use your gear the right way, to advance your technique on the water and to make you a faster sailor.

The course will start at approximately 10am and will include the following:

  • Rigging tips and set-up
  • Equipment handling, launching and landing techniques
  • Tuning up on the water
  • Pumping techniques - early planing
  • Stances - for Upwind, Downwind and reaching in high winds/light winds
  • Manoeuvres - fast tacks and carve gybes
  • Specific Tips for individual needs.

There will be some fun races held to put into practice what you have learnt, at the end of the session with NEILPRYDE product prizes for winners and a BBQ in the evening.

If you are interested in advancing your techniques, learning more generally and going faster on the water as a result, then Email Keith to reserve your space - note: the clinic is limited to 15 spaces on each day. Price is £50 per head for the weekend including launching fees and rescue boat. Accomodation and camping can be arranged by request.
