Flushing Sailing Club Lockdown Lecture Series

by Dave Owens 4 Jun 10:44 BST 7.30pm, 8 June 2020

Flushing Sailing Club is pleased to announce the second webinar in its new Lockdown Lecture series and open to all. The second session led by one of Britain's coaching gurus Mark Rushall is "Downwind - Negotiating the Obstacles" and will be on Zoom at 7.30pm on Monday 8th June.

Mark is a world class sailing coach, mentor, journalist and author and has been with the British Olympic Sailing Programme since 2006. He was the British Team Strategist for the 2016 Rio Olympics and prior to that coached the Paralympic Sonar team in 2008 and 2012. Mark mentors other Olympic coaches and has authored the RYA Tactics book now in its third edition.

The first of the Lockdown Lectures held on Monday 1st June looking at "Upwind the Big Picture" was a great success with Mark imparting his deep knowledge and even some confessions. The session was recorded and we hope to get it online soon. Participants were from the host Club, around Falmouth Harbour and even some from over the border in England.

There is no charge for these sessions but donations to the Flushing Sailing Club Building Fund would be most welcome (details at the bottom of this article). The Club has ambitious plans to re-build its ageing clubhouse for which it has planning permission and is now over two thirds of the way through the £430,000 fundraising campaign. With the Club's centenary in 2021 it is all go for the Club despite the Covid-19 restrictions.

These will be delivered via Zoom and will be a ¾ hour presentation followed by a facilitated Q & A session with questions via the Zoom chat function. Zoom codes below:-
