Opti Race Team,
We will start spring practices next weekend, April 1-2! Katia will be coaching the team on Saturday and Sunday from 9am-4pm. Sailors should be rigged and ready by 9:30am. Wednesday practices will begin on April 5th 4-7pm.
We will have morning workouts on Saturday and Sunday, so pack accordingly. Workouts will start promptly at 9:30am. We will be doing be a fitness test in the beginning/half way/end of the season to have the kids set some goals and stay motivated/active. Exercises will include 1. Max pushups in 1 minute 2. Max Sit-ups in 1 minute 3. As a team we will increase our time for Wall sits.
Please take all Optis off the trailer. After practice, Opti hulls can be stored on the rack on the floating dock in any of the open spots. Opti dollies should be stacked neatly together in the pad (no dollies should be left on floating dock or in the patio area).
Be sure to bring the following to practice:
-dry suits are mandatory. If you do not have a dry suit, do not plan on sailing.
-warm sailing gear: layers, long underwear, fleece, neck warmer, winter wool or fleece hat, rubber gloves or dish gloves to wear over your regular gloves.
-PACK A LUNCH
-refillable water bottle
-Sun protection: sunblock, hat with visor, sunglasses
-tennis shoes & workout clothes (only on Saturday and Sunday)
- Opti equipment you will need that was brought home over the winter
We are excited for the team to get back on the water this spring! I am away doing some personal sailing this week. I will be able to check email during the week, so please let me know if you have any questions.
