2017 Make Your Scot Fly - Lake Murray Sailing Club, Chapin, SC
Want to Make Your Scot Fly? Follow the lead of these 21 sailors who enjoyed 2 days of learning and took their Flying Scots to the next performance level in a very supportive coaching environment at Lake Murray Sailing Club.
Our 2017 event,hosted by Flying Scot Fleet 158, featured a five coach support team headed by Mad Sails owner and Flying Scot regatta winning sailor, Ryan Malgrem, four LMSC coaches, Allan Gowans, Tommy Weaver, Willie Liddicoat, and Ryan Gaskin and visit...ing coach John Kriedler of Western Carolina Sailing Club. Participants had plenty of on board mentoring from coaches who used chase boats to transfer from sailboat to sailboat.
Sailors ran the spectrum from former keel boat sailors looking for more portable fun to beginners who had yet to fly a spinnaker. In addition to our local participants, we had guests from Keowee Sailing Club in the SC upstate, Privateer YC near Chattanooga, TN, Berlin YC near Canton, Oh, and Moraine Sailing Club in Pittsburg, PA.
I think our most heart warming guest scenario was offered by the Phinneys who sailed with their 7 year old son and 4 year old twin daughters, making sure they had fun doing it. Sort of a Joe Brake model of family sailing. Good on 'em!
We had super fun sailing the most versatile day sailor on the planet.
