The North U Regatta Experience combines training in racing the high performance Flying Tiger 7.5 with coaching in every facet of regatta success: Strategic planning, tactical positioning, starting, boat speed, trim, helming, boat handling: Everything.
Through a combination of open water sailing, solo and group drills, practice starts, short course and full course races, dock demos, seminars and video review we make the most of the two days prior to the regatta to get your team up to full speed. Then we go racing.
With our own One-Design start we’ll be racing head-to-head with (and against… grrrr) the other 9 Flying Tiger 7.5 teams!! Your coach will be on board providing training in real time. We’ll also have our video team on the water compiling footage for each day’s debrief. In-competition coaching provides insights and training you can’t get in a pure clinic setting.
The Flying Tiger 7.5
Raced with a crew of five, the Flying Tiger 7.5 is a fast, comfortable, responsive, stable 25 foot sport boat featuring a square-top main and large masthead asymmetric spinnaker. These boats are fast and fun. See some Flying Tiger video here…
North U has been turning sailors into racers and racers into winners since 1980. Whatever your level, we can raise your game.
Sailboat racing is a complex endeavor: Trim, tactics, boat speed, helming, rules, sets, jibes, douses, windshifts, current, waves, chop, weight placement, downwind angles, rig tuning, wind shadows, starting, heavy air, light air …. Each of us has strengths and weaknesses.
Let us help you build on your strengths and improve in areas of weakness to become a better, more versatile racer.
Bring your questions. Leave with skills.
North U Coaches combine championship racing skills with years of coaching experience. With just five sailors plus a coach aboard each boat you’ll get close personal attention. Just to be clear: The coaches will NOT be sailing the boats. You and your team do all the sailing.
