Taking The Worry Out Of Coaching
For many yacht clubs and summer camps, this week marks the start of their junior sailing programs. With that comes hundreds of excited children making their way down to the docks for the first time of the season. For some that excitement is trepidation for the dreaded swim test, while for others it’s an eagerness to dust off the cobwebs and get back on the water.
For instructors their excitement is much the same. Yes, they dread the swim test too (but for different reasons I’m sure), but for some their excitement is one couched in anxiety at seeing the caliber of sailors they’ll have this summer, and for many the excitement is a concern based on the question that’s always in the back of their mind of whether or not the coach boat will start when they need it, what’s broken now, and will it be functional. For the lucky coaches (and clubs) that have purchased the new US SAILING RIBCRAFT 15 this summer, I’m happy to say that that’s one thing they won’t have to worry about.
Built off of the existing RIBCRAFT 4.8 that has served sailing programs and yacht clubs gallantly for years, the US SAILING 15 is the culmination of valuable feedback from sailors. Intended for US SAILING members, ranging from individual sailors looking for a great runabout to yacht clubs needing a reliable support boat, the US SAILING 15 with its simple clutter free layout is the ultimate coach boat for junior sailing programs.
Less is always more when it comes to sailing programs. If you have any experience with junior sailing programs you know that if it can break – it WILL. With that in mind, the US SAILING 15 features a center console, stainless steel lifting points, lots of open deck space, and a 40HP four stroke Mercury outboard. This simplicity combined with the durability and performance of the boat, makes the US SAILING 15 a worry free safety boat for coaches.
