The College of Charleston and historic Patriots Point Maritime Museum, home of the USS Yorktown, have teamed up to create a “truly historic” Advanced Youth Racing Clinic unlike any other in the US!Named “the best all-around” college sailing team in the country in 2012, the College of Charleston Varsity Sailing Team defines excellence in competitive sailing!
This three day clinic, primarily focused on the fundamentals of short course collegiate style racing necessary to compete at the elite level in high school and college racing, will be conducted by College of Charleston Sailing Head Coach Ward Cromwell and Assistant Coach Mitch Hall. While sailing in the Charleston Harbor with its warm temperatures and consistent harbor sea breezes, students will learn and practice the same drills utilized in coaching the C of C Varsity Sailing Team in the school’s 18 420 and 18 FJ fleets.
Additionally, all clinic participants and their chaperones will stay aboard the legendary WWII aircraft carrier, USS Yorktown at Patriots Point in Mt. Pleasant, SC. Just across the Charleston Harbor from beautiful downtown Charleston. The USS Yorktown, just steps away from the C of C Sailing facility, has fully equipped berthing quarters for female and male campers. Breakfast and dinner will be served in the dining mess hall aboard the ship, and box lunches will be provided.
In the evenings, clinic attendees will participate in a variety of activities, including a symposium with guest speakers and activities aboard the historic Yorktown.
Two College of Charleston Sailing Advanced Racing Youth Clinics will be held: Tuesday June 11, 2013 through Thursday June 13, 2013 and Tuesday July 23rd through Thursday July 25th. The cost is $600.00 per camper, $200 for non-sailing adult chaperones and this price is all inclusive.
