NOTE: Performance Race Week will sell out! Do Not Delay; Sign Up Early…
Our 19th Performance Race Week!
19 years ago North U’s Bill Gladstone and Steve & Doris Colgate’s Offshore Sailing School joined forces to create Performance Race Week. Join us, please, for Race Week XIX, April 28 – May 4, 2019 at South Seas Island Resort on Captiva Island, Florida.
Race Week starts with a welcome party on Sunday evening, April 28. You’ll spend the next five days developing and honing your racing skills with a combination of onboard coaching, seminars and video review. Saturday, May 4 is devoted to a championship regatta and awards banquet. (Plan your departure travel for Sunday, May 5.)
Race Week includes 36 hours of sailing, and upwards of 60 starts. You’ll have a coach on board, and you’ll be sailing a Colgate 26 – a modern, lively, responsive boat that’s truly a pleasure to sail.
Sign up individually, or as a team; but don’t miss it!
Beware: Race Week often sells out months in advance. And note also that your non-racing friends and family members can take learn-to-sail and cruising courses coordinated to the Race Week schedule.
A Note from North U Director Bill Gladstone:
Offshore / North U Performance Race Weeks provide an incomparable experience, with expert coaches, great boats, an incredible setting, and an action-packed curriculum that have made this event a feature on our calendar for the last 18 years.
We’ve massaged the schedule and refined our on-water sessions to make the most of your sailing time; but we haven’t messed with the coach-on-board, hands-on focus that has made this program exceptional.
Sailing on the Colgate 26s in Pine Island Sound at South Seas Island Resort, you’ll receive detailed expert training from an onboard coach. You’ll also enjoy shoreside seminars and video review using a curriculum we have tweaked and refined for 18 years.
There is simply nothing like Performance Race Week.
I could try to lure you to Race Week by detailing all you will learn about racing strategy, tactics, boat speed, and sail trim. I could go on and on about our team of expert coaches – not just great sailors, but expert sailors with decades of teaching experience. I might entice you by touting the combination of on-the-water training with onboard coaches coordinated to shoreside seminars and video review.
But in the end, the reason to be there is the fun. Come to the semi-tropical paradise of Captiva Island for the fun! And as a bonus, go home a winning racer!
I wouldn’t miss it. You shouldn’t either.
Race Week XIX is April 28 – May 4, 2019.
See you there!
Director, North U.
