ISAF Nations Cup 2006

Before the racing began in the ISAF Nations Cup Regional Final in Auckland, New Zealand, the ISAF Match Racing Clinic hosted by International Umpires John ROUNTREE (NZL) and John STANDLEY (AUS) proved very popular with the competitors.

The clinic included both theory and practical match racing tactics and training. 13 sailors attended the clinic over the past two days, which was aimed at sailors of any level.

STANDLEY commented, 'We have had a good couple of days. We covered a wide range of topics including Appendix C, the call book and had a very useful on water session of drills to assist with boat handling techniques. The response from the attendees was good and I'm sure they all went away a bit wiser.'


Japan's Takumi NAKAMURA commented, 'The level is more for beginners but it has helped us make many things clear and easy to see on the screen - it was a great time for us. For the beginners it will make the step up easy.

'In my home club in Japan 'Wakayama Marina City Yacht Club' we own six Elliott 5.9s and in May we have some holiday so I will have a small clinic like this for the young sailors at home.'
