Victoria Fleet Runs an August Training Camp

Bill Marshall

Nine members of the Victoria Fleet, plus Matt Koblenzar, a 2.4mR sailor from Milwaukee, participated in our August training camp.
On Friday afternoon, Chris Anstey organized on the water drills to practice boat handling and sail trim in what turned out to be breezy conditions. After sailing, the RVicYC Food and Beverage team provided a delicious dinner on the patio for sailors and spouses.
On Saturday Alex Fox, a very accomplished local sailor, was our guest coach.  With light air conditions in the Cadboro Bay, Alex led us through exercises focusing on starting techniques, upwind and downwind boat handling skills, and concluded the day with practice races. A nice northerly breeze settled in the bay on Sunday, enabling Fleet member Mark Brown and his son Jeremy to set an excellent course and run 5 races.
All in all another fun and informative training camp. Next up, the 2.4 mR Pacific Coast Championship Regatta September 8 to 10, 2023.
