F18 Clinics

The clinics are designed for F18 novices.  We are looking to introduce experienced sailors to the F18 platform with the goal of opening the door to competing in the NAASA F18 League and other high-performance sailing.  Our goal is to get folks comfortable with high-speed sailing, the fundamentals of multihull trim and maneuvers.  Sailors can participate in multiple clinics.  We have seen sailors enter NAASA with zero high-performance experience and in a single season be recruited to the US Olympic squad and the youth and women’s America’s Cup.

Logistics:

  • Friday’s 3:30 until Sunset
  • Every Friday Between June 1st and August 31st
  • Meet at Sail Newport
  • Sailors expected to have their own kit – wetsuits, gloves, life vest, etc.
  • Loaner trapeze harnesses – available
  • If accepted, a $50 annual membership to NASSA required to cover some costs

Any questions please contact NAASA President Chris Bulger at cbulger@bulgercapital.com.
