While sailors are all facing challenges and uncertain times due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the coaching duo of Dave Perry and Dave Dellenbaugh have stepped up to offer an alternative to in-person coaching with an online coaching program.

"One of our board members saw on Scuttlebutt that Dave Perry and Dave Dellenbaugh have come up with coaching sessions available online, and given the coaching relationship the Clagett sailors have with them we thought it would be a great opportunity to be able to offer this to Clagett sailors," commented Clagett President and Co-Founder Judy Clagett McLennan (Portsmouth,R.I.).

The Clagett has had a long term coaching relationship with the "two Daves," in both Newport R.I. at the fleet racing regatta and in Oyster Bay, N.Y. at the match racing regatta, where sailors have benefitted from their expertise.

"We want to be part of the Clagett community and we were having withdrawals," said Perry (Southport, Conn.). "We were picturing everyone under the tent sharing information before and after sailing, and then along came the Zoom platform and we said "hey, we can be back under the tent with everyone again - virtually!"

"This is our way of engaging with the sailors who we see each year in Newport and Oyster Bay when they're at a Clagett regatta," remarked Dellenbaugh (Clinton, Conn.). "We love helping all the sailors in the Clagett community improve."

Clagett sailors are being offered the opportunity to continue learning from the internationally renowned pair with weekly online sessions organized for Clagett sailors starting in May and the sessions are free thanks to the support of the friends of the Clagett community and start on May 9, 2020.

Clagett sailors can register for these sessions by going to forms.gle/AzsDC2A3mmn8jYb78 Registration is on a first come - first served basis.
