2013 Training Weekends
Once again UKFA has organised some great training events to ensure that YOU - Fireballers - can continue to get the most from your sailing time and your boat.
Adam Bowers and Mark Rushall will be providing the benefit of their experience and their great coaching skills at two events this year.
Registration is now OPEN.

Training events are open to all class association members (non members also welcome for an additional fee). Mark and Adam have been engaged for a weekend each to run the events, assisted by a number of volunteer coaches from the UK fleet. Regardless of what level you race at, the knowledge and experience gained from working with a professional coach for the weekend will improve both confidence and race results.
Does you club have a Fireball fleet, or are there a number of clubs within a small area who can get a group of boats together? If so, we can arrange for a professional coach or experienced fireball sailor to come to your club and run a training day or weekend.
I'd like to get involved in coaching, how can I help out?
We're always on the lookout for potential new volunteer coaches. If you feel you have something to offer, and are able to give up a few hours of a weekend to help out we'd love you to get involved. You don't need to be a national champion, or even a high flying open meeting competitor. Provided you've done a reasonable amount of club racing, you'll be able to help others improve, and probably also improve your own sailing in the process. As an association, we'll help you develop your coaching skills and for the more committed, help you with obtaining RYA nationally recognised qualifications. Please contact Ian Priest if you're interested.
