• The North U Regatta in Paradise will feature a 2-day clinic followed by a 2-day regatta on a fleet of matched IC24s. Plan your arrival for Wednesday, February 15. Sailing starts Thursday morning with a clinic led by World Champions Mike Marshall and Dave Franzel. They will put you through your paces with a series of drills, starts and races to get you up to full speed.  Included in the clinic are midday and after-sailing seminars and debriefs. The clinic runs through Friday afternoon.
    The clinic is followed by a two day regatta. The coaches will be on hand shooting video and providing between race, midday and after-sailing debriefs.
    We'll be racing the St Thomas Sailing Center’s fleet of 8 matched IC-24s. Enrollment is limited to 8 teams.

    Clinic, Regatta
    The Regatta in Paradise starts with a two day clinic led by world champions Mike Marshall and Dave Franzel leading into a two day regatta.  Shoreside debriefs and video review will continue during the regatta. The event is limited to a maximum of 8 teams.  

    Curriculum
    The North U Clinic and Regatta in Paradise combines training in a clinic setting with in-competition debriefs.
    Sailboat racing is a complex endeavor. Every sailor has strengths and weaknesses in their skill set. We’ll improve areas of weakness and build on your strengths to send you home a better, more versatile racer. The clinic portion will teach you how to make the most of your practice time; while the in-competition coaching will provide insights on racing success beyond those you get in a clinic setting.
    Improve your sailing and racing skills through a combination of on-the-water drills, coached training, shoreside seminar instruction, video review, and in-competition coaching. The emphasis will be on practical real-world techniques to improve starting, sail trim, helming, boat speed, crew work and tactics.
    Did we forget to mention that you’ll be racing in paradise? This could be fun...
