On the weekend of the 15th/16th of August a group of 26 sailors gathered to take part in the 420 Class Training in Ägeri. Nikos Drougkas the international coach from RVZS lead the training together with Roman Thurnherr from the SSTR5. Additionally, there were a few top 420 sailors present to support and show some tricks.
After a round of croissants and chocolate drinks, the sailors split into different groups and manoeuvres were trained step by step on land. Each group had an expert showing them the basics or little tips and tricks depending on the level. As soon as the wind picked up after lunch, the boats were launched. The rest of the day was spent sailing an up and down course to now practice the manoeuvres on the water. Also, the beginner teams had an experienced sailor on their boat to give them additional support. At the end of the day a group photo was taken with everyone wearing their new 420 class t-shirts.
On the second day, the group was split into the more and less experienced 420 sailors. While the one group was getting their asses kicked by the crazy Greek, the others continued to work on their manoeuvres and some short races to round it off. We finished the day with ice-cream, happy faces and newly gained knowledge.
