This is a clinic for members who want to learn about, and gain access to our new foiling board. The foiling board will be restricted to level 3 windsurfers, but all members are welcome to attend and observe. The clinic will largely focus on the correct procedures for preparing, transporting and launching and landing the board / foil so as to prevent damage to oneself and the equipment. We will go over how to properly care for it and get give some instruction on how to sail it, but as no one in the club currently has a lot of foiling experience it will be a highly interactive clinic where we will share our experiences and solicit feedback from clinic attendees about best practices for using the foiling equipment. It will be a learning process for all of us!
Foiling is an exciting new aspect of windsurfing. While many skills are transferable from non-foiling boards, it does require some new skills. This clinic will introduce you to the club's foiling equipment and best practices around using it.
The clinic leaders will consist of fleet captains, and possibly other members who already have some foiling experience.
Please prepare yourself for the clinic with the following:
Introductions - 5-10 minutes (everyone, at picnic table)
Board and foil introduction - 30-60 minutes
Members to try out the foiling board
Reconvene and debrief (possibly on the Jericho patio over a beer)
