About This Project
The OTC (Official Test Centre) lies within the National Sailing Centre right on the shores of iconic Portland Harbour, the scene of the 2012 sailing Olympics and the Weymouth Speed Trials.
In the prevailing wind directions the wind is clear and the water shallow and flat = gorgeous.
As a place to work on everything ‘non wavy’ but especially waterstarts, early planing, getting into straps, speed, moves of all kind and especially especially the carve gybe, it doesn’t get any better.
We are so happy to finally be allowed to run courses again.
However, the OTC and the Academy are particularly nervous about the situation because if there is just a single infection, they have to shut down for 2 weeks.
So we have to run the course slightly differently.
– Group limited to 5 + 1 instructor. (good for you!)
– Limiting land based time – most tuition taking place on the water (as it should be anyway)
– video replay indoors not allowed so I will send you video + comments individually.
It’s a TWO DAY general skills
if you can plane in the harness, you’re good enough
Bring your own. But if you want to hire kit from the vast selection you get a discounted price of £60 a day.
If you’re looking to stay down, the OTC can suggest a variety of options.
The course is scheduled for a Monday/Tuesday so we can enjoy uncrowded waters.
It also allows you to extend your weekend and potentially enjoy a 4 day break on this fabulous stretch of coast
The OTC, as the name suggests, has for hire and demo models from all the major brands.
You won’t get a better chance to experiment with designs and set-ups.
The course is limited to eight sailors so it’s all about personal attention. I help you set your own agenda and we work through it together.
