  • Coaches: Krystal Weir and guest Laser coaches (if required)

It is that time of year where we are all thinking about jumping into a different class or wanting to upskill in the Laser in preparation for next season. 

Laser coach Krystal Weir and RBYC once again partnered to offer all aspiring Laser sailors a pathway into this exciting dinghy.

This is a great opportunity for junior and youth sailors to make their first or the next step in the Laser 4.7 class. This is a fast-track program open to all sailors aged between 13 and 16 years old.

During the 6 weeks, we’re gonna work on:

  • Tacking
  • Gybing
  • Hiking technique
  • Speed work
  • Basic strategy and tactics
  • Launching
  • Capsize techniques
  • Laser-specific rigging and settings
  • Injury prevention (Krystal is a fully-qualified physiotherapist operating a successful business at RBYC)
