Regional training SSTR5

In total 5 Teams of the region around the lake of Zurich were training on the lake of Garda the last couple of days. For three teams it was their final preparation for the junior Europeans and the world championship, which will start next week. For the other two teams it was their first time sailing in strong wind which was surely a great experience.

One of our experienced 420 Class Members, Nik Burkhard, has created a "Trim Calculator" on excel. It is very simple to use, one must simply download the file. Make sure to fine-tune your boat for your next regatta!

Find it in the tab downloads.

(The trims are well tailored, and based on experience and knowledge, however, you must still experiment to find your own perfect trim)

2020 Class Training

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.
