After a successful introductory webinar on tactics and strategy with Gonzalo ‘Bocha’ Pollitzer and Fernando Gwozdz last month, the Royal Cork Yacht Club is now offering members the opportunity to take part in a further four weekly sessions with the duo from this evening, Monday 1 June.

For €50 per household, members will have access to all four of the webinars which the club says leave you primed for when you get back on the water.

As the topics cross a number of classes, these webinars are aimed at all boats rather than being class-specific:

  • Monday 1 June at 7.30pm — Starts: Important concepts and priorities during each minute of the starting sequence
  • Sunday 7 June at 7.30pm — Key Moments & Communication: Decision making around the race course and “Calls” onboard
  • Sunday 14 June at 7.30pm — Upwind Tactics: a set of different scenarios to think about
  • Sunday 21 June at 7.30pm — Reaching/Downwind Tactics: Understanding the key factors for good decision making

For registration and more details, visit the RCYC website HERE.
