Welcome to the Neill Advanced Sailing Clinic

Thursday, June 12th to Sunday, June 15th, 2014  

See the Events Schedule for more detailed information on the daily activities for the sailors.

ATTENTION: All Ida Lewis sailors, we are coordinating early departures so that you can attend both events.

MISSION:

The mission of the Neill Advanced Sailing Clinic is to provide accomplished high school sailors with intense, high quality sailing instruction by top collegiate coaches.

WHAT HAPPENS AT THE CLINIC?

Three days of intense, on the water coaching, by successful college coaches followed by personal debrief sessions. This program consists of lectures and on-the-water drills including tactics, strategy, sail trim, boat speed, etc. Coaches utilize  video footage, archival footage, chalk talks, land demos and on-the-water exercises. Additionally, our coach to boat ratio is low with one coach for four boats and attendees have the opportunity to work with all of our coaches.

WHAT ACTIVITIES ARE PLANNED FOR THE EVENINGS?

  • THURSDAY:  Casual dinner with coaches discussing all aspects of college sailing with a Q&A session.
  • FRIDAY:  The Chicago Match Race Center is holding a Level 2 Regatta and will host our sailors for the Pro-Am race experience  including dinner at their facility the evening before the regatta begins.
