This is conceived as an evening of on-water drills held in Mercuries focused on improving boat speed, boat-handling, tactics and other racing techniques. Drills will vary per attendance and wind conditions, and may include tack/gybe on the whistle, starting drills, pursuit race, hold position, or follow the leader. Volunteer coaches will attempt to provide briefing, debriefs, a structured practice environment, and occasional individual and on-water feedback.
Who: Regular racers with Mercury Red rating. (Novice and beginner racers may make own arrangements to crew for an experienced skipper.)
Where: Racers should be rigged and ready for briefing at the dock at the start of practice.
