Supported by the UKWA and the RYA, the Techno Class Association (TCA) are offering the opportunity to all Techno Sailors to access coached training with RYA Coaches (TBA) at the excellent training venue of Axbridge on 19th & 20th February. Pre-entry essential.

The focus will be on improving board handling skills with both days starting at 9.30am and finishing at 4.30pm. On Saturday sailors will be expected to be dressed ready for warm up exercises (not in wetsuits) and rigged for  9.30am. Training will follow the usual formula of a mixture of land, classroom and water based exercises and ending with a final debrief on Sunday at about 3.45 - 4.30pm. The coaches will adapt the programme to suit the conditions. Winter sailing gear may be compulsory and a Techno board is preferred.

This event is non-residential, however there is overnight camping, no electric (no tents) is available Saturday night only and must be pre-booked via or Sailracer for alternative accommodation.

There is a galley at BCYC so hot and cold drinks will be available as will lunch (lunch must be pre-booked at registration).

For further information contact Julie at or look on Sailracer for more details.
