Montreal June 12th 2017 - During the past two weeks, two clubs in the Montreal area hosted two major events!
From May 26th to 28th, the Royal St-Lawrence Yacht Club received the high performance coach Steve Mitchell at the 29er Training Camp for the 2017 Canada Games. Sixteen athletes, sailing height boats, benefited from Steve Mitchell’s experience, and from a highly individualized coaching thanks to the participation of Tyler Bjorn and Mitch Macdonald from PCYC, and Steve Waldie from RStLYC. The light wind allowed the athletes to work on their boat tuning techniques and also to practice racing strategy, especially thanks to the numerous races that took place at the end of each day. The athletes were even given a brief session ashore when the wind weakened and, taking advantage of every opportunity, they deepened the theory and knowledges lying behind the science of finding the right boat tuning.
The Clinique de développement Optimist, hosted by the Canadian Optimist Dinghy Association (CODA), was held at the Club de voile Deux-Montagnes from June 2nd to 4th, in addition with the Laser Training Camp for the Canada Games 2017. The event gathered forty-three sailors in Optimist dinghy, divided into three groups according to their level, twelve Radial athletes, and also a dozen of Optimist coaches interested in race development. Steve Mitchell, assisted by Tyler Bjorn (PCYC), Hugo Morin (EVO) and Philippe Pasquin (CVDM), were in charge of the Laser camp while Flor Siccardi, Nova Scotia Optimist Head Coach took charge of the Opti Clinic. The weekend drills and practices focused on the key aspects of racing. In the end, all the participants agreed that the event was a major success for the long-term development of sailing in Quebec.
We really want to thank Valerie Lavigne from RStLYC and Carmen Denis from CVDM who generously put club facilities at the disposal of the athletes and coaches, and made these great events possible. A big mention to Trevor Parekh for the prizes distributed at the 29er camp and to Tyler Bjorn who took charge of the logistics and organization of the events as well as to all the coaches present at these events: Steve Mitchell and Flor Siccardi , Pierre-Alexandre Doyon (CVDM), Mitch Macdonald (PCYC), Stephen Waldie (RStLYC), Philippe Pasquin (CVDM), Julien Brunet (RSLYC), Maxime Fecteau , Hugo Morin (EVO), Alexandre Pagé (RStLYC), Nicolas Tosi (HYC), Claire Valade (CVDM) and Frédérique V-Paquette (Hermitage). Thanks to Tony Staples and Christine Musiejczyk from CODA and Nicolas Mocchuiti for their involvement.
Congratulations to all the athletes and great start of season for all!
