Irish Sailing Racing & Classes Policy Group (RCPG) Spring News

Newsletter 3.2022

During the most recent committee meeting, the Policy Group discussed areas of racing which would be of benefit to affiliated classes to help support, develop and improve both participation & activity levels.

Following feedback from classes on the Policy Group, a number of suggestions were made by sailors that they felt would benefit all classes:

Class Webinars

  1. Communications workshop for Classes and Events

Is your Class or Club planning a big class event this year? In this workshop we’ll discuss how best to promote your event through social media and look at how to attract “traditional” media – building relationships, interviews, and writing press releases. 2nd of May at 1800hrs. To book your place:

  1. Racing based coaching session. RCPG suggests running dinghy & keelboat focused sessions with leading coaches on set topics, starts & 1st beats and tactics & strategy. Sessions will include video coaching along with interactive ‘play by play’ clips.
  2. Preparation and Mental Focus – RCPG suggests running a session on helping sailors lay down foundations in their preparation ahead of racing.

Keep a close eye on and Irish Sailing’s social media platforms for further details and times for these sessions.

If there are other areas which you or your class would like to see included in coaching webinars, please let us know –
