Book this rare opportunity to work with Olympic Coach Vaughn Harrison to improve your downwind speed and handling tremendously.Laser sailing and the way champions sail downwind has changed a lot in the last 15 years and there are still massive gains to be had in most sailors’ downwind technique. 

In our most popular clinic, we’ll tow 11 miles up the coast in the morning and sail downwind in warm, champagne sailing conditions all the way back to ISA every day for 6 days. That’s more downwind practice than your average sailor gets in a decade!

You’ll work on downwind strategy/tactics, crucial body positions for all wind conditions, sail setup and sheet tensions, capsize prevention, positive and negative flow, pressing, rocking technique, wave catching, surfing, sheet timing, light wind best practices, staying legal/rule 42, wave skew identification/technique, roll jibes, lee to lee jibes, heavy air jibes and more.

Gain access to Vaughn’s proven and ever evolving downwind methodology currently practiced by top Olympians and national team members. Vaughn is on the cutting edge of downwind technique and brings his Olympic secrets to the public in our Downwind Clinic.

Monday through Saturday begins with a daily briefing/theory lesson, followed by two to three hours of on-water training, and finishing with a video analysis based debrief.
