Wind clinic

This four Day training clinic is the most highly attended youth focused clinic in North America. Sailors aged 9-18 will develop skills to help them reach the highest levels of sailing competition. ISA provides attendees with next level coaching alongside the epic conditions delivered by the Columbia River Gorge.

Detailed technical and practical briefings start the day. Then develop your skills and confidence in the building breeze and waves of America’s windiest river. Finally we’ll recap the day with video review of the days experiences. We focus on heavy air speed and boat handling techniques, upwind/downwind strategy & tactics, fitness, rigging, capsize recovery and more! Lunches are provided by the Columbia River Gorge Racing Association.

Participation is open to Laser Standard, Radial and 4.7 sailors with sufficient skills and experience to sail comfortably in high wind conditions. Limited to 40 sailors.
