Race Skipper Development Lectures

17th January, 20:00 - 22:00

*This calendar entry and bookable is limited to those members who are part of the Race Skipper Development programme*


Hugh Styles has put together a series of 5 lectures for us this year, to develop our skills.

They'll be delivered as a series of Zoom calls, all to happen at 8pm on their respective days. These were made up for the club, and haven't been delivered before, so allow some extra time in case he runs over on content. It's content that comes from his professional sailor coaching programs, so I'm really looking forward to taking part. The lectures will break down roughly as follows:
