Dave Perry will coach the J-24 sailors during Fleet 43’s evening racing on Wednesday, July 31. Following the races, Dave will highlight issues and critique the fleet with what he promises to be a lighthearted and humorous, but educational post-race video debrief.

The event will start at PYC at 4:30 PM where Dave will introduce himself and describe what he plans to do. The fleet will head out to the boats and race a normal schedule of races. Dave will provide advice to the racing fleet using his loud hailer.

Following the racing, Dave will conduct a post-race video debrief of the race with the goal to help everyone improve their decision making and skills around the course.

If the weather results in race cancellation, Dave will select one of his entertaining and informative tactics presentations to present to the audience.
