The Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron have announced that they will be running their successful International Foiling Camp for the second year running.
The camp was first launched in 2017 and had 10 students from around Australasia take part in what was the first event of its kind in this part of the world. The sailing is completed on the RNZYS’s two foiling Nacra 20 foot catamarans and is held in two halves, with one half being run out of the RNZYS base in Auckland and the other out of the Kawau Island Boating Club.
The Kawau portion of the camp runs from 16 to 24 December and involves a Nacra safety course, match racing training, theory sessions, fitness testing, training and nutrition. Then the second portion back in Auckland from 25 December to 12 January focuses on short course Nacra racing, an in house Nacra 20 regatta, as well as Keelboat and offshore training in Elliott 7’s, MRX’s and members keelboats.
The coaching on hand for this camp is world class and is led by NZ Extreme Sailing Series Skipper Graeme Sutherland who is supported by Olympic Nacra 17 sailors, professional Match racers including Chris Steele, and members of the highly regarded RNZYS Performance Programme.
