The ever-growing Marina del Rey Lido 14 – Fleet 2 is sponsoring a racing clinic from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, March 3rd, at South Coast Corinthian Yacht Club on Mindanao Way in Marina del Rey.

Lido legend John Papadopoulos will be in charge of the day and beginners are welcome.

“If you have never been on a race course, then this is the perfect time to find out if it’s something you may want to try this year,” said fleet captain Tracey Kenney. “If you are an experienced sailor, then it’s time to sharpen your skills — practicing in a non-competitive situation is an excellent time to try things that you may not do in a race.”

In contrast to clinics in the past, the focus of this clinic is on-the-water practice. The majority of the day will be spent with Papadopoulos running drills, with the emphasis on boat handling skills and tactics.
