Lots of Learning at Scow Clinic

Two days under the tutelage of scow racing champion Kevin Caulfield gave local sailors lots to absorb and put to practice.  With light air both days, Coach Caulfield emphasized  heeling and the importance of heads-up crew work to keep the big boats moving.

Three I-20s and one M-16 participated Nov. 10-11 with sailors coming as far away as Hoboken New Jersey and Chautauqua New York.

Georgetown Sailing Team loaned a skiff for the event, giving Coach Caulfield maximum maneuverability as the big scows glided through the paces.  A more extensive write up is  coming shortly.  Meanwhile…enjoy these pix from Day 2, which offered a soft south breeze filling the spinnakers to Haines Point.
