Hosted by Long Beach Yacht Club and sponsored by the Long Beach/Los Angeles Women’s Sailing Association, this annual event highlights all-female crews racing against each other in LBYC’s beautiful Catalina 37s.

This clinic for WSA Members only will focus on an important and often difficult part of any race, the downwind leg. It also happens to be the part of a race where any boat can really make up time if working effectively.
We are going to focus on how to trim the spinnaker for optimum speed, as well as how crew and captain can best communicate. The clinic will be led by Karyn Jones who has graciously offered to teach aboard her boat, Outrageous. She will be assisted by two of our WSA racers, Mary Ho and Carey Meredith. The day will start with chalk talk at South Coast Corinthian Yacht Club and then we’ll head out onto the water. July 13 11:00am – 2:00pm
All levels of racer are welcome and Karyn will try to accommodate all who wish to come out on the water. Of course there is a limit, so boat space will be given in order of those who sign up. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
As with WSA day sails, clinic participants must have a signed waiver on file. So whether you want to hone your trimming skills for the WOW, looking to learn a new position, or just want to see what this racing is all about, come join us.
